Revelstoke Mountain Resort

Caribou conservation engagement scheduled for April 15 in Revelstoke

The public is invited to community engagement sessions to provide feedback on two draft agreements to conserve southern mountain caribou populations.

The two draft agreements have been developed under Section 11 of the federal Species at Risk Act.

A draft Section 11 agreement between British Columbia and Canada sets a framework for co-operation between the two governments to recover southern mountain caribou.

A draft partnership agreement between B.C., Canada, West Moberly and Saulteau First Nations proposes specific habitat protection and restoration measures to recover the central group herds of southern mountain caribou.

Staff from the provincial and federal governments will share information about the draft agreements and will be available to answer questions.

Feedback collected from these sessions will help inform the final agreements.

The community engagement sessions are scheduled as follows:

Revelstoke – Monday, April 15
5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Revelstoke Community and Aquatic Centre
Rooms MP2 and MP3
600 Campbell Ave
