Environment Minister Charlene Johnson announced today the province will be participating with other organizations to determine the status and health of the George River caribou herd.
The work involved will include a review of current management approaches and methods and will be informed primarily by a planned census of the George River caribou herd scheduled to be completed in 2010.
The George River caribou herd is the migratory forest-tundra ecotype of the woodland caribou, which migrates between forest and tundra in both Quebec and Labrador. The herd was last estimated in 2001 at about 385,000 animals.

Geographic location: George River, Quebec, Labrador
