The Caribou Challenge
The Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management Group (SERM) has written up an article on the state of woodland caribou. In 1987 SERM closed the sport hunting season for woodland caribou. At that time a survey showed the caribou's range was three-quarters of its historic size and estimated the population had shrunk to half of its traditional number. In 2000 the woodland caribou was added to Canada's endangered species list. Along with the Federal government and other Canadian provinces, SERM is now developing a recovery plan for the woodland caribou.
