The CMU at the ABMI supports caribou recovery efforts across Western Canada by providing scientific and monitoring services to a broad spectrum of stakeholders. One of the projects that we are involved in is the Revelstoke Caribou Rearing in the Wild program (click here for more detail). We invite you to watch this recent video that depicts the impact of community cooperation in caribou conservation. The CMU looks forward to future opportunities to apply strong science to the challenge of caribou management and conservation.

The Caribou Monitoring Unit (CMU) was developed to support woodland caribou recovery in Canada. The CMU works with academics, industry, and government to facilitate applied research and provide scientific expertise to evaluate and monitor caribou recovery options.
