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.
