Not to be confused with the numerous barren ground caribou or the woodland caribou, the mountain caribou is faltering all over B.C. In the United States it would be, and in fact it is, an endangered species. A tiny herd hangs on in northern Idaho. It wanders back and forth over the border.
This sad situation has been brought on by too much logging old growth forests. Now the B.C. government has a plan, and it’s controversial.
Read in the Globe and Mail, “Can B.C. help save endangered caribou?”
