Protect Woodland Caribou

Woodland caribou may be extinct before the year 2100 if the rate of range loss continues. Once found throughout much of Ontario's boreal forest, widespread range collapse and landscape disruption caused by humans are the chief causes of caribou range recession and population decline.


To date at least half of the caribou;s range has been lost due to activities that disturb and fragment their forest habitat, such as road building and logging.


Forest harvesting is a major part of caribou decline. Logging also is a major cause of caribou mortality. Logging the mature boreal forest has led to aspen/birch habitat ideal for whitetail deer which carry with them a parasite fatal to woodland caribou.


We ask that you ensure the survival of the Woodland Caribou by protecting and enhancing its natural habitat.
