  • 2019 Bluenose East Caribou Proceeding – Level 3

On January 14, 2019, the WRRB received the “Joint Proposal on Management Actions for the Bluenose-East Ɂekwǫ̀ (Barren-ground caribou) Herd 2019-2021” outlining proposed management actions for the Bluenose-East caribou herd in Wek’èezhìı. The WRRB considers any restriction of harvest or component of harvest as the establishment of a Total Allowable Harvest and in such cases is required to hold a public hearing. The WRRB has determined that the proposed management actions are such that the Board must undertake a Level 3 review, as per its Rule for Management Proposals.
