Caribou - Add your voice

Canada’s woodland caribou need your help. Their habitat is slowly disappearing, leaving them increasingly vulnerable to predators, climate change, and hunger.
Scientists have listed these caribou as nationally threatened, and in some regions of the country critically endangered with only a handful of animals left in the herd. With careful planning and an eye for sustainable solutions, we can ensure that caribou have the space they need to survive.
Canada’s Boreal forest contains some of the last large expanses of caribou habitat – old growth forests and peatlands. We have the opportunity and responsibility to maintain these for the caribou and for future generations.
Take Action: Join CPAWS and 50,000+ caribou supporters in asking provincial and territorial governments to do their part in protecting the caribou’s boreal forest home by 2017, as required by the federal government’s Species at Risk Act. Protecting caribou habitat benefits all Canadians by protecting the water that flows to our cities, improving the air we breathe, and mitigating climate change by maintaining the huge quantities of carbon stored in the Boreal.
Join us and we’ll keep you updated on the latest caribou news, and let you know how you can help protect caribou in your province or territory.
Can the caribou count on you?
|I support protecting Canada's threatened woodland caribou and their Boreal forest home. I urge my government to take immediate action to protect the caribou's remaining critical habitat. By signing this pledge, I consent to receiving email updates on CPAWS' caribou and conservation efforts.
