Caribou habitat in Alberta’s boreal forests and wetland ecosystems has been fragmented and degraded by extensive human access networks and industrial infrastructure, including seismic lines, cutblocks, well sites, roads, trails and pipelines. The combined impacts remove intact connected wetlands and older forest areas that caribou rely upon to minimise encounters with predators.

The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need – if only we had the eyes to see.
