Over the past 30 years, field biologists have shown the links among forestry, hydrocarbon development, and road building and the decline of woodland caribou.

Caribou are vulnerable to habitat loss for several reasons: , which had been posted for the August 19 rights auction, have since been withdrawn by Alberta Energy.

In May of 2014, Alberta’s ‘mountain’ caribou were assessed as Endangered – in immediate danger of extinction – by Canada’s Species at Risk Act scientist advisors (COSEWIC).

Yet the Alberta government plans to sell off a further 1,765 hectares of energy leases in these endangered caribou ranges from May 14 to June 25, in apparent disregard of the habitat crisis facing its caribou.

The Alberta government sells new petroleum and natural gas lease sales in five threatened caribou range areas, despite already unacceptably high industrial disturbance of caribou habitat in those areas.

AWA calls on the Alberta government to cease new surface leasing and new disturbance permits in Alberta caribou ranges and to make good on its promises to maintain and restore caribou habitat.

The most consistent and pervasive threat to the persistence of a viable caribou population in Alberta stems from resource extraction industries, which are causing an overall loss and fragmentation of habitat.

Reports from locals and government biologists dating back 60 years have documented the absence of caribou following the establishment of industrial activity in an area.

The newly approved forest management plan for Alberta Newsprint Company (ANC) includes a one year deferral across the Little Smoky herd range.

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.

On March 6, the Alberta government postponed the auction within the endangered Redrock Prairie Creek mountain woodland caribou range.

Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA) welcomed this decision and called on the Alberta government to defer further energy lease sales in endangered caribou ranges until effective rules were in place to protect and recover their habitat.
