Recovery Strategy for the Woodland Caribou, Southern Mountain population (Rangifer tarandus caribou) in Canada - 2014 [Final]

Appendix B: Maps of Critical Habitat for Southern Mountain Caribou Local Population Units (LPUs)

The 24 maps in this Appendix depict critical habitat for southern mountain caribou to the extent possible based on best available information.

The available information is inadequate to identify the critical habitat necessary to meet the population and distribution objectives set in the recovery strategy. Therefore, the maps depict only a partial identification of critical habitat. Full identification of critical habitat will only be possible upon completion of the schedule of studies in section 7.2.

The data used to create the 24 maps is that which is publically available, or has been provided directly to Environment Canada by the responsible jurisdiction or landowner. The maps will be updated as additional data is obtained and analyzed, leading to the full identification upon completion of the schedule of studies.

Each map depicts within its extent all the critical habitat that has been mapped for southern mountain caribou, not just the critical habitat for the LPU that map focuses on.

The LPU boundary is the geographic area within which most critical habitat for an LPU is located. As per section 7.1, critical habitat is identified as the habitat possessing those biophysical attributes required by southern mountain caribou to carry out life processes (See Appendix C) and which is found within the applicable ranges that are delimited by the LPU boundaries for all Groups, and Type 2 matrix range which may occur outside of the LPU boundaries. Therefore, not all of the geographic area within an LPU boundary is critical habitat.
