Converting old forest to early seral stands through forest harvesting turns good habitat for caribou into good habitat for moose, deer, and elk—and their predators. We will set up camera traps in cutblocks and fit deer with GPS collars to see how cutblock characteristics affect their use by deer. Managers can use this to design cutblocks with caribou conservation in mind.
Caribou Conservation through Better Cutblock Design
Beginning in 2018, this project will investigate how cutblock design can be less favourable for deer, moose, and elk.
