Some stabilization surpassed by trend suggesting numbers still declining
There are still caribou in the Cariboo, for now.
Despite the stabilization of some of the herds through habitat protection and predator culling, the Ministry of Water, Land and Resource Stewardship said that the overall trend is still that of concern. As of 2023, all caribou herds in the Cariboo Region are considered threatened under the federal Species at Risk Act.
There are currently an estimated 1,021 caribou across the Cariboo-Chilcotin separated into several herds.
