This three‐ to five‐year pilot project will determine if maternal penning can improve the survival of caribou calves and adults in the Columbia Mountains ecosystem by protecting them in a secure enclosure for four months until calves are larger and more capable of avoiding predation. If successful, this tool will be used to increase the size of the Columbia north caribou sub‐population. The goal of the project is to use maternal penning in the Revelstoke area to increase calf survival by a factor of two to three.
