The Tweedsmuir-Entiako caribou population, federally listed as Threatened, is the first Northern Caribou population to experience the mountain pine beetle epidemic. The focus of this project is to assess the impacts of the mountain pine beetle epidemic on Northern Caribou habitat use during the grey attack phase of the epidemic using radio-collared caribou. Information from this project will be used to develop management strategies for caribou ranges following mountain pine beetle attack.
The objective for the 2007/08 FSP Project M08-6047 funding portion of the project is to conduct monthly (12) radio-telemetry flights to locate radio-collared caribou.
