Abstract: The Cariboo River Valley is located in east-central British Columbia, east of Quesnel. The study area includes 3090 hectares of the Upper Cariboo River Wildlife Management Area plus surrounding land to approximately 1050 m. The area has a large wintering moose (Alces alces andersonii) population and has abundant moose forage, particularly on the floodplain. The area is near the upper limits of snow depth tolerance of moose, although snow depth is variable from year to year. In severe winters, moose are forced to use river ice for movement. The current study was done to assess moose wintering habitat and to provide an ecological framework for studying moose habitat relationships, and for maintaining or enhancing available forage and cover. This study can also be used to assess the habitat use of other wildlife species. This report and the map (Vold and Lea, 1986) describes the Habitat Units and interpretations for moose. Before moose habitat alteration takes place, moose management objectives and other wildlif
