EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY Closure of Baffin Island Caribou harvest

Press Release

February 12, 2024

The Baffin Island Caribou 2023-2024 harvest is closed effective immediately. No further harvesting is allowed.

The Total Allowable Harvest (TAH) of 400 caribou established by the Nunavut Wildlife Management Board for 2023-2024 has been reached. Any remaining tags are immediately void and are to be returned to the local Wildlife Office or Hunters and Trappers Organization.

Any additional harvesting of the Baffin Island Caribou during the 2023-2024 season is in violation of the Nunavut Wildlife Act. Violations will be investigated and may lead to enforcement action.

The TAH was established to support the recovery of the Baffin Island Caribou population and is a critical piece in the co-management efforts to allow the herd to recover and provide harvesting opportunities for future generations.
