Revelstoke caribou to be mentioned on Nature of Things

Caribou penning project to get some coverage on national program Nature of Things airing on Mar. 21.

Revelstoke-based mountain caribou researcher Rob Serrouya will appear on an episode of the Nature of Things on Mar. 21.

The episode called Billion Dollar Caribou focuses on issues facing the woodland caribou in Alberta’s boreal forest. Oil development is pressuring caribou habitat, and there are competing ideas about what to do about it.

Environmental organizations and First Nations groups favour protecting land, while oil companies favour habitat resgoration, predator control and fenced enclosures.

Serrouya, the science lead on the Revelstoke-based Revelstoke Caribou Rearing in the Wild (RCRW) maternity penning project, appears to share his expertise.

“I’m guessing that Revelstoke and me will be on three minutes of the show,” Serrouya told the Times Review. He pitched the RCRW project, but isn’t sure the mention will be aired.

Even if the Revelstoke section is short, Serrouya encourages everyone to watch the show to better understand the issues.
