Boreal Caribou Science to Inform Recovery – Science Summary Sheet #1

Environment and Climate Change Canada

This summary sheet provides a synthesis of two science pieces completed by ECCC: the 2011 meta-analysis of boreal caribou population and habitat condition, and the scientific research to inform critical habitat identification in Saskatchewan's Boreal Shield (SK1). It briefly describes why each piece was done, key results, and how the work relates to the 2012 recovery strategy. For further information, please consult the 2011 scientific assessment and 2012 Recovery Strategy documents available on the SAR Public Registry.
