The Province is looking for public comment on an updated B.C. boreal caribou implementation plan (BCIP) that was originally completed in 2011.
Until May 31, 2017, the public can visit the website to share their thoughts on the new implementation plan for the boreal caribou in British Columbia. This species has been experiencing population declines over the past 17 years. The general public, First Nations, local government and stakeholders are encouraged to provide feedback which will be considered in finalizing the plan.
The 2011 plan was designed to slow the rate of decline of caribou populations, while research and monitoring was done to determine the best options for recovering the species. The updated BCIP incorporates the results of research and monitoring to provide management direction for caribou population recovery. During the review period, the public can read the plan and provide comments that will be considered by the Province for the final updated plan which will be released this fall.
