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
Response of threatened species to linear features and landscape change in a managed forest ecosystem in West Central Alberta
How are caribou affected by the roads and seismic lines criss-crossing their habitat?
Potential Impacts of Mountain Pine Beetle and Management Actions on Grizzly Bear and Caribou Populations in West-Central Alberta
This project will determine how MPB-killed stands are impacting caribou and grizzly bear habitat.
Analysis and improvement of linear features to increase caribou functional habitat in west-central and north-western Alberta
This project uses direct and indirect methods to determine how caribou respond to linear features at different stages of re-vegetation.
