Abstract:

A recovery action plan for recovery of caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) in north-central British Columbia is presented. This plan represents work completed by a technical team in support of the Northern Caribou Recovery Implementation Group for North-central British Columbia (henceforth the RIG). Work focussed on operational definitions for survival and recovery habitats using a habitat supply model called the Caribou Habitat Assessment and Supply Estimator. Successive applications of this model were conducted to estimate a range of likely habitat values for five seasonal ranges across four planning areas using simulations of assumed natural disturbance under unmanaged conditions. Results were used as a baseline reference point to set context for subsequent development of herd-specific recovery actions. Theoretical potential values for seasonal ranges were also calculated, plotted as maps, and used as a second reference point to further the recovery context.
