Caribou Herd: Wildlife Infometrics

Population Assessment for the Wolverine Caribou Herd

This project will provide up‐to‐date population information on the Wolverine Caribou herd by providing information on the current mortality rates, main causes of mortality, and the pattern and rate of recruitment. In latewinter 2016, 30 GPS radio‐collars will be deployed on adult female caribou in the Wolverine range and a population census will be conducted. The GPS‐collars are expected to function for three years.
