The 1st BC Mountain Goat Workshop (Prince George, BC, March 1-2, 2005) was organized by the Peace/Williston Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program and the BC Ministry of Water, Land and Air Protection, Biodiversity Branch. The objectives of the workshop were to present results and techniques from recent research and inventory projects on mountain goats in BC, and to guide discussions to focus expert opinions on documenting the current status of knowledge on mountain goat ecology, management concerns and future research needs.
This was the first workshop held in BC to address research and management issues pertaining to mountain goats. Some mountain goat issues were addressed as components of two Northern Wild Sheep and Goat Council symposiums helpd in BC: the 1st NWSGC symposium in Penticton (1978) and the 9th NWSGC symposium in Cranbrook (1994). As a measure of the change in research needs and management policies, the titles of BC mountain goat papers presented at the 1978 and 1994 symposiums are listed in Appendices A & B.
