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
Analysis and restoration of seismic cutlines in Southern Mountain and Boreal caribou range in west-central Alberta
Starting in 2013, this project is looking at how caribou and wolf behaviour is related to cutlines.
Can forestry and silviculture practices help increase caribou functional habitat in west-central Alberta?
This project will evaluate and mitigate industrial impacts on west-central Alberta Caribou herds.
Restoration of Seismic Cutlines in Caribou Range in West-Central and North-Western Alberta: maximising success and targeting areas used by alternate prey
A single year Habitat Stewardship Program Species at Risk project with the Caribou Program.
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.
