Restoring Terrestrial Lichen for Threatened Northern Mountain Caribou

Caribou: Steve Rooke

Northern Mountain Caribou Post‐Fire Habitat Restoration

Northern Caribou are specialists that require mature upland habitat with an abundance of terrestrial lichen. These lichen serve as a critical food source in the winter. The goal of this project is to restore terrestrial lichen populations in the area of the Chase herd that was burned by wildfire in 2014, with the intention to seed forage lichen in the burned region.
