The fRI Research Caribou Program carries out applied research, in partnership with industry and the Government of Alberta, to help maintain caribou herds in Alberta into the future.
Program & Project Involvement
This project examines how moose respond to different re-vegetation trajectories on seismic lines after disturbance and different silvicultural treatments used by forestry. A re-vegetation prescription or silvicultural treatment that moose avoid may be less of a problem for caribou.
Advancing Harvest System and Silvicultural Practices for Improved Woodland Caribou and Fibre Outcomes
This 3-year study will evaluate the potential of new forest management practices to benefit both woodland caribou and growth and yield.
