SL caribou collision hotspots 2018
February 1, 2018 The road to recovery began 25 years ago when First Nations, governments and residents started working together to help these herds recover. Today, the growing numbers of caribou are testament to the sacrifice and effort invested. But these “urban” caribou aren’t in the clear yet as human activities continue to encroach on their range.

One of the major threats is collisions with vehicles. Be mindful when travelling on roads or in the backcountry this winter. Remember, you are in caribou habitat. This map shows collision hotspots. For more information, call 867-667-5652.
