AWA Input to NW Municipalities on Caribou Recovery

August 30, 2017

AWA’s letter of August 30, 2017 providing comments to the Northwest Species at Risk Committee on their draft report on caribou recovery. The key themes AWA outlines for northwest Alberta caribou recovery are:

  • caribou’s intact habitat needs;
  • working together to optimize habitat restoration and protection across caribou ranges;
  • importance of protected areas to meet habitat targets;
  • three proposed Wildland Provincial Parks will achieve the most protection of caribou range for the least socio-economic cost to northwest communities, because there is no industrial forestry currently in these areas;
  • encouraging Mackenzie County and County of Northern Lights to pursue Biosphere Reserve designation
