Science, Utilization, Conservation and Co-Management of the George River Caribou Herd
AbstractFour objectives of the George River Caribou Workshop were identified: (1) to consider present and past assessments of caribou numbers and population trends in the GRC (2) to explore the role of environmental factors such as climate and habitat change on population dynamics (3) to consider actual and potential human activities on the population and distribution of the caribou (4) to discuss caribou management strategies and the co-management concept. The workshop was organized around four half-day sessions focused on each of these objectives and each session featured three or four keynote speakers.
