Satellite imagery reveals new cutblocks are ‘nibbling away’ at the critical habitat of the endangered Columbia North caribou herd, widely considered to be the Kootenay-area population with the highest chance of persisting in the long term.

“Even in the wake of B.C.’s 2018 caribou recovery plan, numerous logging cutblocks have been approved in critical caribou habitat throughout the province’s south.”
