Management and Conservation of Caribou Habitat in the Cariboo Region

This special investigation is about whether operational plans in an area used by caribou in early winter met the requirements of the Forest Practices Code of British Columbia Act, its regulations and its guidebooks (the Code).

The Board initiated this investigation to address concerns that were identified during, but outside the scope of, a previous Board investigation of FDP consistency with the Cariboo-Chilcotin Land Use Plan: FPB/SIR/06, Implementation of the Cariboo-Chilcotin Land Use Plan in Forest Development Plans. The complainant in that previous investigation believes that several recently approved operational plans will result in damage to habitat used by caribou in early winter.
