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.
