Act now to save boreal caribou
In vast herds crossing a frozen landscape, majestic antlers towering over the open woodland, on the back of the Canadian 25-cent piece since 1936:
the caribou is a national icon.
Over thousands of years, caribou evolved to thrive in some of our harshest wilderness environments. But now their habitat is changing so quickly that caribou don’t have time to adapt.
Our new report, Caribou in Crisis, explains what caribou need to survive in the boreal and what must be done to protect them.
In 2012, the federal government released a strategy to care for caribou that laid out important work the provinces needed to do over the next five years.
That deadline is approaching and the provinces still have not done what is needed.
You can help by:
- Writing a letter to Prime Minister Trudeau reminding him that caribou are protected under Canada's Species At Risk Act (SARA)and demanding action, not more delays.
- Contacting your provincial or territorial government asking for a strong plan to protect boreal forests and boreal caribou.
We need your help to ensure that governments across Canada take the necessary steps to safeguard boreal caribou and their wild forest home.Write your letter today!
Thanks for taking action to protect wilderness and wildlife — like the boreal forest and the caribou that call it home.
