2009 Survey: Beverly and Qamanirjuaq Breeding Adult Caribou Cows Continue to Show Steep Decline on Calving Grounds

Beverly and Qamanirjuaq Caribou Management Board – Alarmed by the fact that observers on the June 2009 reconnaissance survey of Beverly caribou counted even fewer breeding adult female caribou (cows) and calves on the calving ground than in 2008, the Beverly and Qamanirjuaq Caribou Management Board (BQCMB) is calling on everyone to work together for the benefit of the Beverly herd – and to make sure that the neighbouring Qamanirjuaq and Ahiak barren-ground caribou herds don’t suffer the same fate. “We have to get everybody together on one side,” urges BQCMB chairman Albert Thorassie, who says he wants to see action, not just talk. “We have to do something about it.”
