The Redrock Prairie Creek mountain caribou population was estimated to have declined from 212 animals in 2009 to 127 in 2012, a 40% decline.This population was rated as ‘Stable’ in 2004 when Alberta’s ineffective 10 year caribou recovery plan was put in place.Despite repeated assurances of protective actions from government and industry, resource extraction has increased, pushing caribou in many areas to the brink of extinction.We work towards the long-term survival of caribou by ensuring protection and restoration of important caribou habitat.The conservation community, including provincial biologists, has recognized the need to protect this species since the 1940s.Over the past 30 years several management plans and committees have been created to address the population decline; however, changes to industrial practices that would protect caribou have been limited to a few years of deferred logging.
The newly approved forest management plan for Alberta Newsprint Company (ANC) includes a one year deferral across the Little Smoky herd range.Since September 2014 the Prentice government has auctioned over 1600 km of Alberta caribou ranges for oil and gas leases.On March 5, AWA’s News Release outlined Alberta Government plans to auction new oil and gas leases on 21,000 hectares (212 square kilometers) of endangered mountain woodland caribou habitat, in the Kakwa region of west central Alberta without rules to reduce surface disturbance below current excessive levels.AWA recognizes the importance of these lease sale withdrawals and urges the Alberta government to defer all new energy leasing within caribou ranges, until strong habitat-recovery range plans are in place to ensure survival of Alberta’s endangered caribou.On April 29, in the midst of an election, the Alberta government planned another major auction of new oil and gas leases on 35,600 hectares (356 km) of endangered mountain and boreal woodland caribou habitat, without rules to reduce surface disturbance below current excessive levels.
