Caribou Presentation Reflection

Today in Geography class, we welcomed Carolyn Callaghan who is a Senior Conservation Biologist who specializes in Wolf Ecology. She took time out of her day at the Canadian Wildlife Federation to come to CRHS to Speak to us.

A couple things that I learnt from this presentation are:

Caribou are safe and able to move around in 100cm in snow due to their big hooves. 

It uses it's big hooves to scoop low in the snow for lichen and other plants. 

The government has taken some caribou from healthy populations and were relocated to increase population size. 

Some questions I have are:

Why is caribou awareness vital in saving them?

What is the biggest complication causing this entire food chain to be unstable?

Who are killing off the caribou and putting them in danger?

Overall I think the presentation was very insightful and interesting and I'd love to hear more about this topic. I hope there's a future for caribous and all other animals .
