The NWT Barren-ground Caribou Management Strategy 2006–2010 (Report)

NWT Wildlife Division – The NWT Barren-ground Caribou Management Strategy 2006–2010 supports the Legislative Assembly’s vision and goal to care and protect the land, water and wildlife. The Strategy draws on previous management planning initiatives conducted with co-management boards, caribou management boards and NWT communities. The Strategy will not replace herd specific management planning but rather will provide a unifying context for those plans. The five-year NWT Barren-ground Caribou Management Strategy includes principles to guide barren-ground caribou management. The principles indicate that all NWT residents will understand their role and impact on barren-ground caribou and that the GNWT and co-management boards have leadership roles in making decisions on management actions. These include: engaging partners in management, ensuring information is available for management decisions, managing impacts of human activities, public education and compliance, and addressing hardships from low caribou numbers.
