Caribou Recovery Pilot Project

The Caribou Recovery Pilot Project has been established to further develop the concept of a predator-free fenced area to support a small breeding population of woodland caribou (the Pilot). The Pilot is proposed as one conservation management tool in a suite of complementary recovery actions for boreal caribou that may be endorsed and implemented by the Government of Alberta as part of caribou action and range plans. Both habitat restoration and population management are likely required to ensure self-sustaining woodland caribou populations in northeast Alberta and the Pilot could provide immediate recovery benefits to complement longer-term habitat recovery efforts.
