Who We Are

The Mountain Caribou Project (MCP) is a joint effort of Canadians and Americans working to protect mountain caribou and their Inland Temperate Rainforest habitat, neither of which are found anywhere else on earth. Largely as a result of their efforts, there is now a science-based provincial recovery plan. The goal of the plan is to maintain the current range of mountain caribou by protecting, restoring and reconnecting critical mountain caribou habitat. The MCP now works to make sure the government implements the recovery plan according to their commitments and to make sure that adaptive measures are pursued if necessary.
