Comment on NWT's Proposed Caribou Recovery Strategy
The biggest threats to boreal caribou in the NWT are habitat loss and disruption. Incremental encroachment by the oil and gas sector as a result of seismic exploration and new roads built to access well sites have caused the majority of linear habitat disturbance to date.Your participation in the development of the NWT boreal caribou recovery strategy and ongoing support for timely and effective implementation of objectives and actions is an important way to ensure that the recovery strategy is a successful stewardship and resource management tool.
