Caribou population - Jasper
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. Data collected provide some of the necessary information needed to prepare park-specific plans for conservation and recovery activities.
