Province to provide $6.5 million for caribou habitat restoration

VICTORIA, B.C. – The Province of British Columbia has announced that it will be providing $6.5 million over three years for caribou habitat restoration.

According to the Government, the funding will be administered to qualifying organizations through the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation’s Caribou Habitat Restoration Fund.

The Province says human influence on the landscape, including forestry, mining and roadbuilding, has altered caribou habitat and that projects pursued under the fund will focus on restoring habitat through both functional and ecological approaches.
