Targeting alternate prey to understand caribou and moose habitat management choices in a regenerating landscape: Increasing functional habitat for caribou in west-central ranges

This project examines how moose respond to different re-vegetation trajectories after disturbance. A re-vegetation prescription that moose avoid may be less of a problem for caribou.

This Caribou Program project examines how moose respond to different re-vegetation trajectories after disturbance. This will give re-vegetation prescriptions that favour moose less, and therefore are less of a problem for caribou.

This project in the Little Smoky, A la Peche, Redrock-Prairie Creek, and Narraway caribou ranges will look at variables like ecosites, vegetation height, and other habitat and landscape characteristics. We will use moose GPS collar data to figure out which re-vegetation prescriptions after disturbance like forest harvesting and seismic lines moose are more likely to avoid.
