West Moberly Unveils Precedent Setting “Action Plan” to Save Threatened Caribou Herd
West Moberly First Nations unveiled a precedent setting plan on June 14, 2013 to save the Klinse-za caribou herd from the brink of extinction. The plan follows the requirements of Canada’s Species at Risk Act and aims to boost the herd’s numbers from 23 to over 650 within the next 21 years.
“To our knowledge, this is the first time that a First Nation has ever drafted an Action Plan that meets the strict standards set out in the Species At Risk Act. Once adopted, this plan will be a historic achievement both for First Nations and for caribou conservation,” said West Moberly Chief Roland Willson.
