Alberta’s boreal caribou need your voice.
Boreal caribou living in Alberta are staring down a road to extinction – and they need your help to change course.
If these caribou could have a conversation with us, they would have ample stories of how industrial development and habitat destruction pose serious threats to their survival.
But since these majestic animals are unable to speak like we do, it is up to us to lend them our voices and call for federal protection for this threatened species.
Boreal caribou are in danger of disappearing from Alberta because the province has failed to prevent further threats to their critical habitat. A government report published in October 2017 lists seven out of 12 Alberta herds as in decline. 1
The good news is that when provinces falter, the federal government has the power to step in to protect Canada’s wildlife. Under the Species at Risk Act, the government can extend protections to at-risk species on provincial lands by making a safety net order.
That’s where you come in.
Take action today and give boreal caribou a voice.
We cannot stand by and do nothing as further habitat destruction propels boreal caribou down the path to extinction.
Urge Minister McKenna to recommend a safety net order to protect this iconic species.
