Environment Canada is developing a Recovery Strategy for the threatened mountain caribou populations in the cordilleran region of B.C. and Alberta and Cortex, in collaboration with Caribou Consulting, Wildlife Infometrics, and a team of participants from all levels of government, assessed different information needs and approaches to identifying critical habitat for these populations. The results formed a set of options for identifying critical habitat for various populations and were used as input by EC into the draft Recovery Strategy, released in winter 2014.
