Today, Jasper National Park caribou have a better chance to survive and recover thanks to the many Albertans and Canadians who spoke up for them over the past several months.

To protect caribou, Parks Canada announced on October 8 that there will no longer be backcountry access for any part of the snow season in Jasper’s Tonquin and Brazeau caribou ranges. That season runs November 1 to May 15. Parks Canada also expanded the area where these restrictions apply in the Brazeau range.

There is an urgent need to engage people with nature. All aspects of it. Not just the pretty bears and cute snakes. Also the realities of it, the death, struggles, and pain. Not only are people losing touch with nature, they are losing touch with the realities of nature.
