In February of 2014, following assessment by the NWT Species at Risk Committee, the Government of the NWT (GNWT) officially listed boreal caribou as a “Threatened” species under the NWT Species at Risk Act.  The listing as “Threatened” requires that a recovery strategy is finalized within a two year time frame.  

Now the GNWT is inviting public comments on the proposed draft NWT Boreal Caribou Recovery Strategy.  Comments are due by July 20, 2015.

The GNWT is asking:

Do you have suggestions to improve the draft recovery strategy?

What actions do you think should be taken to help conserve and recover boreal caribou in the NWT?

Your participation in the development of the NWT boreal caribou recovery strategy and ongoing support of timely and effective implementation of objectives and actions is an important way to ensure that the recovery strategy is an effective stewardship and resource management tool.  

Visit our CPAWS-NWT boreal caribou Action page to easily submit your comments or thoughts regarding the proposed boreal caribou Recovery Strategy!
