An electric group of caribou researchers and managers gathered to foster the exchange of information and to review current activities. The participants included government and academic researchers, government wildlife managers, and government and industry forest managers. Rather than give a verbal presentation of data, the speakers were asked to share insights gleaned from their years of experience with caribou, especially if the insight was unique and relevant to other studies. Renewed interest in the management of caribou in British Columbia has led to the initiation of a number of studies that encompass most of the caribou herds in the province. The workshop provided the necessary focus to realize what we already know and to direct subsequent research and management activities more precisely to the target of successful management of this species.
