AWA Wilderness & Wildlife Defenders: Request AB Energy Minister Defer New Leases in Threatened Little Smoky Caribou Range

February 6, 2013

In violation of Alberta’s 2011 woodland caribou policy that places an immediate priority on maintaining caribou habitat, Alberta Energy plans auctions of new oil and gas leases within the Little Smoky caribou range in west central Alberta on February 7, March 7 and April 25, 2013. Please take a moment to write Energy Minister Ken Hughes to request these lease sales be deferred until habitat can be restored for the Little Smoky caribou population, which is at imminent risk of local extinction.
