Preliminary Caribou Management Plan for British Columbia Pettigrew, P.S.
1979
A

Abstract: Caribou are well adapted to snowy environments and depend largely on lichens as a winter food. Caribou in British Columbia were once classified into two subspecies: the Osborne in the north and the Mountain in the south. However, both types of caribou are now considered to be Woodland caribou. The Dawson caribou of the Queen Charlotte Islands, which became extinct about 1910, was also given species status but this designation is questionable. The current population in B .C. is estimated to be between 10,000 and 20,000 animals. Caribou have a low reproductive rate. This paper will discuss objectives, policy, management prescriptions, and problems relating to Caribou and the need for a Management Plan.
