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?
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.
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.
This project will gather data on the disease and parasites carried by moose, deer, and elk to determine the risk of transmission to caribou.
