Many years ago, elders from both Saulteau and West Moberly First Nations expressed to their leadership that we needed to take action to protect and save our dying caribou herd. Both Saulteau and West Moberly First Nations have now taken action to protect the caribou.
Habitat restoration, wolf control and maternal penning are all key factors exercised to protect the herd. The herd started with 16 caribou and now currently, there are nearly 100 caribou! The project is gaining national attention with W5 interested in examining the project as well as the local response to the Section 11- land protection measures.
We look forward to watching the Caribou Herd grow in numbers and we want to thank all the supporters who helped make this happen!
