The Very Rare Mountain Woodland Caribou

Mountain Woodland Caribou  (Rangifer tarandus) are the most critically endangered mammal in the U.S., with only a few dozen residing for part of the year in the mountainous Selkirks of Northern Idaho and Northeastern Washington State.

A small population exists in Canada, near the US Idaho and Washington borders.

This is a very sensitive species, that does not suffer changes and disturbances well.
