CARIBOU PATROL

Hunting is one of the cornerstones of traditional Indigenous culture and way of life. The people who make up Aseniwuche Winewak Nation (AWN) once relied on caribou as an important resource for survival. AWN began to notice a decline in the caribou herds they hunted and herd populations in the Grande Cache area are now at only around 400 animals across four herds. Although they have the legal right to hunt caribou, the Aseniwuche Winewak Nation voluntarily stopped harvesting caribou in the early 1970s and still do not hunt caribou in their traditional territory in support of conserving those animals that are left. The Elders teach that we must speak for those who have no voice. Thank you to everyone for following correct hunting protocols for the area and for your support of the Caribou Patrol Program. 
The hunting of caribou by non-Indigenous people in Alberta is strictly prohibited as caribou are listed as a species at risk.
To report a poacher, call 1-800-642-3800.
