"Quebec Moves To Protect Woodland Caribou"

"QUEBEC – The Quebec government has announced its plan to preserve the endangered woodland caribou, designating as protected 90-per-cent of the province’s intact forests.

The woodland caribou, unlike its migratory cousin, stays in the same forest area. A report by Quebec’s chief forester last year found that logging and forestry roads were disturbing the habitat of the woodland caribou and endangering the ecotype.

Quebec’s plan calls for returning existing forestry roads to nature, in collaboration with first nations people living in Quebec’s north."
