Boreal caribou in wintry landscape
Boreal caribou are well-adapted to Canada’s wintry landscape. Long legs and insulated hooves make traveling through snow a snap. Their burden is habitat loss. From coast to coast, boreal caribou are threatened with extinction because human activity is destroying the old-growth forest and wetlands where they live. Ensuring caribou survive has far-reaching benefits. Their home, after all, is the same boreal forest that keeps the climate habitable and purifies the air and water. Thanks to the support of people like you, Ecojustice is using the law to protect boreal caribou herds in Alberta and Ontario.
