Caribou forestier

A report on the status of woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) in the James Bay region is now available online in both English and French.  Piloted by researchers of the Industrial Chair in Sustainable Forest Management (Louis Imbeau, Pierre Drapeau and Tyler Rudolph) and Boréas (Martin-Hugues St-Laurent), the study was commissioned conjointly by the Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources and the Grand Council of the Crees following the formation of a regional species recovery task force. Supported by an extensive analysis of 10 years of data, the report evaluates the condition of three woodland caribou herds (Nottaway, Assinica and Temiscamie) occupying the territory subject to the James Bay Cree-Quebec agreement.
