Looking For Action - Caribou Losing Ground 

In its second annual review of governments' efforts to conserve Canada's boreal woodland caribou, the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) finds that threats from industrial development to this species have continued to increase while conservation and restoration efforts have shown little progress across the country.

CPAWS found that only one province and one territory implemented concrete measures in the past 12 months that will protect boreal caribou. Manitoba created a new park protecting about 1,000 km2 of habitat, and Northwest Territories listed boreal caribou as threatened under its new species-at-risk legislation.
