Woodland caribou are a large mammal species that often get mistaken for moose on the Canadian quarter. They are an iconic species that roams the boreal forest as an indicator and umbrella species and they play a critical role to some Indigenous communities.
Our Saskatchewan species are suffering as a result of instability. This instability isn’t just caused by factors related to the environment or the human footprint; a lack of consistent engagement in wildlife protection initiatives significantly impacts progress. We must hold ourselves and our governments – our leaders – accountable for advocating and implementing effective strategies so conservation progress can endure.
The Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement (CBFA) was a historic agreement made in 2010 with the Forest Product Association of Canada (FPAC) and its member companies, as well as various environmental groups. It is a collaborative, multi-year agreement committed to achieving goals related to both environmental and economic sustainability in the boreal forest.
