Boreal Caribou

Implementation Plan for Ongoing Management of Boreal Caribou in BC

The Government of British Columbia has approved the implementation of management activities for Boreal Caribou including:

  • Protecting certain areas of Boreal Caribou habitat from industrial activities;
  • Managing the size of industrial footprint;
  • Mitigating the effects of the industrial footprint where industrial activities are allowed;
  • Restoring boreal caribou habitat;
  • Managing caribou predators and alternate prey; and
  • Conducting research on boreal caribou and their habitat. Implementation of these activities is described in the Implementation Plan for the Ongoing Management of Boreal Caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou pop. 14) in British Columbia.

The implementation plan can be obtained at http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/wld/speciesconservation/bc/
