EXCLUSIVE: Bluenose-East Caribou Population declining

145

Bluenose-East caribou numbers have declined to the point that the herd is now listed as Red, meaning a low population, and the Bluenose-West caribou population remains ‘intermediate and decreasing’ in Orange status.

Caribou of the Cape Bathurst herd remains in the red status as well, though observations suggest the population has stabilized.

The figures come from the latest public update of stakeholders in the Advisory Committee for Cooperation on Wildlife Management status meeting Nov. 19-21 at the Inuvik Community Corporation.
