Canada’s woodland caribou: industrial disturbances in their ranges and implications for their survival

January 1, 2012

Report by Global Forest Watch Canada. Finds that for the eight boreal woodland caribou populations with ranges in Alberta’s bitumen (oil sands) administration area, the amount of industrial disturbance is 64% of their ranges as of 2010, compared to a Canada-wide average of 14% industrial disturbance. The combined natural and industrial disturbance rate in a caribou’s range should be about 20% or less (i.e., 80% undisturbed) to result in caribou herds likely to be self-sustaining.
