Abstract: All Caribou in British Columbia (B.C) belong to the woodland subspecies (Rangifer tarandus caribou), and are further classified into three ecotypes based on differences in habitat use, behaviour, and migration patterns. Approximately 17,000 northern ecotype Woodland Caribou (hereafter Northern Caribou, Rangifer tarandus pop. 15) reside in the province. This document focuses on seven herds belonging to this population found in the southern Peace region of B.C. (hereafter South Peace Northern Caribou). These herds are referred to as the Graham, Moberly, Scott, Burnt Pine, Kennedy Siding, Quintette, and Narraway. There are approximately 1,000 South Peace Northern Caribou in B.C. The following summarizes the designations that apply to South Peace Northern Caribou (SPNC), which are designated as Threatened by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (Thomas and Gray 2002). They are listed as Threatened in Canada on Schedule 1 of the Species at Risk Act (SARA). In B.C., the South Peace Northern Caribou are ranked S3 (special concern, vulnerable to extirpation or extinction) by the Conservation Data Centre and are on the provincial Blue list. The B.C. Conservation Framework ranks the South Peace Northern Caribou as a priority 2 under goal 2 (prevent species and ecosystems from becoming at risk). They are protected from capture and killing, under the B.C. Wildlife Act. Caribou are also listed as a¬úCategory of Ungulate Species for which an Ungulate Winter Range (UWR) may be legally established under Section 11(3) of the Government Actions Regulation of the Forest and Range Practices Act (FRPA). UWRs contain habitat necessary to meet the winter habitat requirements of an ungulate species. Caribou are also listed as a Category of Species at Risk¬Ě for which a Wildlife Habitat Area (WHA) may be legally established under Section 11(1) of the Government Actions Regulation. ...
