Welcome to the fRI Research Caribou Program!
The Caribou Program began in April 2013. Working closely with the Grizzly Bear Program, the Caribou Program will undertake research related to conservation of caribou in Alberta.
From 1993-2005, fRI Research had a Woodland Caribou Program, founded on more than a decade of Alberta Fish and Wildlife Division research. The Woodland Caribou Program studied landscape changes that negatively impact woodland caribou populations. Based upon research results, this program also recommended mitigating management strategies. It was supported by the timber industry, petroleum industry, federal government, and provincial government.
