Species of the Week: The Caribou!

Ancient members of the deer family, caribou are perfectly adapted for survival in the North. Made up of three distinct types – Barren-ground, Woodland and Mountain – caribou are one of Canada’s most widely distributed large mammals.

 

Fragmentation and conversion of habitat, compounded by climate change, have diminished some caribou herds by as much as 85% in the last decade.

To help WWF continue to protect this animal’s home, symbolically adopt a caribou.
