Movements of barren-ground caribou have been tracked by the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) since 1996 using satellite radio collars. Collars provide key information on caribou throughout the year.
Fire is a natural and important part of the boreal forest ecosystem. Northern plants and animals have adapted to the cycles of fire and regrowth, and barren-ground caribou have co-existed with the effects of forest fires on their winter range for thousands of years.
This document details the expectations regarding the required sections for a full-scale Tier 3 WMMP. Specific sections required for Tier 1 and 2 WMMPs are described in the WMMP Process and Content Guidelines. A template for a Tier 1 WMMP is also provided.
The Knowledge Agenda is a tool that will be used by GNWT leaders, planners, policy-makers and researchers, in conjunction with GNWT legislation, policies, strategies and plans to advance the strategic goals of government and ultimately improve the quality of information used to make decisions in the Territory.
