Object & Deliverables


The Caribou Range Recovery Project had a two-fold purpose – mitigation of some of the impacts caused by linear corridors by restoring them back onto a treed successional pathway; and testing of the effects that tree falling techniques may have on limiting the use of linear disturbance areas by caribou predators and alternate prey species.

The field work, data collection & analyses, and the report writing associated with the two phases of this Project took place over the period 2001 to 2005 inclusive.
