Woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) is a threatened species protected under the Federal Species at Risk Act (SARA). Jasper National Park provides important habitat for the Southern Mountain Woodland Caribou ecotype of the subspecies. Data are collected by aerial surveys to determine local population size and range, survival and recruitment; and DNA samples (e.g. feces, carcasses) are collected for population genetic analyses.
This feature dataset focuses on a terrestrial species at risk, the Critical habitat boundaries for the Woodland Caribou, Atlantic-Gaspésie population (Rangifer tarandus), under the responsibility of Environment and Climate Change Canada.It displays the geographic areas in Quebec where critical habitat has been designated under the Species at Risk Act (SARA). However, not all of the area within these boundaries is necessarily critical habitat. To precisely define what constitutes critical habitat for a particular species, it is essential that this geospatial information be considered in conjunction with complementary information provided in a species’ recovery document (recovery program or action plan). These documents can be downloaded from the Species at Risk Public Registry (http://www.sararegistry.gc.ca).
Shows areas where the health and prevalence of caribou can be linked to the attributes of the land that supports them. Ontario's Woodland Caribou Recovery Strategy (2008) provides advice and recommendations on the approaches needed for the recovery of Woodland Caribou. The strategy recommends the identification of ranges and local populations to: * maintain existing, self-sustaining, genetically-connected local populations of caribou * ensure security for and (reproductive) connections among currently isolated mainland caribou * re-establish caribou in strategic areas to create self-sustaining local populations and ensure connectivity Instructions for downloading this dataset: * select the link below and scroll down the metadata record page until you find Transfer Options in the Distribution Information section, * select the link beside the Data for download label, * you must provide your name, organization and email address in order to access the dataset This product requires the use of GIS software. *[GIS]: geographic information system
The Porcupine Caribou Herd is a population of barren-ground caribou whose range includes the northern Yukon, Alaska and the Northwest Territories. It is one of the largest caribou herds in North America. The Porcupine Caribou Herd is critically important to the Vuntut Gwitchin, and protecting portions of the herd’s spring and fall migration habitat was one of the main reasons for creating Vuntut National Park.
As part of a scientific assessment of critical habitat for boreal woodland caribou Environment Canada 2011, see full reference in accompanying documentation , Environment Canada's Landscape Science and Technology Division was tasked with providing detailed anthropogenic disturbance mapping across known caribou ranges. This data allowed researchers to better understand the attributes that have a known effect on caribou population persistence. The mapping process was established to create a nationally consistent, reliable and repeatable geospatial dataset that followed a common methodology. The methods developed were focused on mapping disturbances at a specific point of time, and were not designed to identify the age of disturbances, which can be of particular interest for disturbances that can be considered non-permanent, for example cutblocks.
Caribou are a culturally important species to the Dene people, and traditional harvest is permitted in the national park reserve. The park monitors sustainability of the caribou populations by carrying out aerial surveys.
The Itcha Ilgachuz Caribou Habitat Area (IICHA) and associated quadrants were developed as a part of the 2002 Northern Caribou Strategy, with revisions in 2011. The boundary is based on caribou telemetry to 2011, and is used to form the outer boundary of the quadrants that are used to help determine the rate of cut within WHA 5-086.
Boreal caribou core habitat areas for the Peace Region are areas of high current capability and suitability based on boreal caribou habitat requirements and known use (via surveys, telemetry studies, etc.)
Landscape Units (Subdivisions) were developed as a part of the 2002 Northern Caribou Strategy and are used for landscape level planning within Wildlife Habitat Area 5-086. For details please see: [Apps, C. D., T. A. Kinley, and J. A. Young.
Summer, Winter Alpine, and Winter Forest-Dwelling habitat model for caribou in the Itcha, Ilgachuz, and Rainbow Mountains of West-Central BC. This habitat model was developed using telemetry from the Itcha-Ilgachuz, Rainbow, and Charlotte Alplands Herds. [Season] field should be used to split the data out into separate summer, winter alpine, and winter forest-dwelling habitat models. Model development is detailed in _Apps, C. D., T. A. Kinley, and J.
