CARIBOU IN CRISIS

This is the saddest statistic I have encountered yet in the wildlife world. Two important Yukon/Northwest Territories Canadian Caribou herds population numbers are plumeting to very dangerous levels , the ‘Bathurst’ herd is estimated to be at 15,000 animals, a drop from 460,000 in the mid-1980’s. The ‘Bluenose-East herd has dropped to around 30,000 animals, previously in the hundreds of thousands…

Is this the oil industry,  global warming, over hunting, what is responsible for this decline? Where will this all end?
