Recovery Strategies

Recovery Strategy for the Woodland Caribou, Boreal population (Rangifer tarandus caribou) in Canada

The Woodland Caribou, Boreal population (also called boreal caribou) was listed on Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA) as Threatened in June 2003 when SARA came into force. The Minister of the Environment has prepared this recovery strategy as per section 37 of SARA.

Environment Canada's Canadian Wildlife Service led the development of this recovery strategy. Provinces, territories, wildlife management boards, Aboriginal groups, other stakeholders and the Parks Canada Agency all contributed information and provided expertise for this recovery strategy.

Success in the recovery of boreal caribou depends on the commitment, collaboration and cooperation of many different constituencies that will be involved in implementing the broad strategies and general approaches set out in this recovery strategy and will not be achieved by Environment Canada, or any other jurisdiction, alone.

Consultation period: 2011-08-26 to 2012-02-22
