Episode 2 – Caribou Recovery with Dr. Robert Serrouya
Caribou Recovery with Dr. Robert Serrouya
In this episode, we are in Revelstoke, British Columbia chatting with caribou researcher Dr. Robert Serrouya from the Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute. We learn why caribou located in the southern population in BC and Alberta are endangered. We also discuss cool t-shirts, saving endangered species with adaptive management, where white-tailed deer fit, social science, trade-off decision making, the controversial moose and wolf stabilization efforts, 500 jobs vs. 500 wolves, and whether the cart was put before the horse at the caribou public consultation forums in BC.
