Caribou on Yukon Highways
December 20, 2016Read more... The Carcross and Tagish Renewable Resources Council and Environment Yukon would like to remind motorists to be aware of wildlife on highways in the Southern Lakes area this winter.
The Carcross caribou herd are back in their winter range, and will frequently be crossing the Alaska Highway and the Carcross and Tagish roads until the end of April. Be alert when you see signs of caribou - like scat and tracks - on the right of way or in the ditches.
Hard work completed through the Southern Lakes Caribou Recovery Program has helped this herd slowly recover from historic low numbers in the early 1990's. Your careful driving helps maintain a healthy caribou population.
For more information on Southern Lakes caribou, their management, or the Recovery Program, contact Environment Yukon at 667-5652.
