In this report, the David Suzuki Foundation highlights opportunities for caribou conservation that have not been realized due to the political climate and the propagation of the much-exaggerated jobs-versus-environment framing. Drawing on research from three provinces — British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario — this report aims to illustrate examples of how and where caribou conservation and industry can co-exist and areas where caribou habitat restoration can contribute to a viable economy.
