Supporting caribou by monitoring deer in the North Columbia

Eleven white-tailed deer and three mule deer in the Columbia Mountains have been outfitted with GPS collars as part of a multi-year project with Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute. The data collected will shed light on why populations are declining, which is critical to effective management and recovery actions. This project also saw a white-tailed fawn and three mule deer fawns equipped with expandable VHF (very high frequency) collars—thanks to Revelstoke’s Caribou Rearing in the Wild for donating those collars!
