For untold generations, hundreds, likely thousands of caribou roamed the old growth forests and alpine meadows of west central Alberta around Grande Prairie and Grande Cache. But those caribou herds have been dwindling for decades and could soon die out due to rapid industrial development of their habitat and feeding grounds. Today, their numbers are counted in the dozens.

In the past I've seen chaos in the hills. And because I study cumulative effects, I know that everything is related. So I've come to realize that there is a big picture and we won't get there unless we plan along the way.
