Canada’s de­clin­ing pop­u­la­tion of bo­real cari­bou was thrown a po­ten­tial life­line in July when the fed­eral gov­ern­ment re­leased its pro­posed plan to help pro­tect the threat­ened species. Carl Mclean, deputy min­is­ter of lands and nat­u­ral re­sources for the Nu­natsi­avut gov­ern­ment in Labrador, wel­comed the news, say­ing the de­cline “has re­ally dev­as­tated all of our com­mu­ni­ties, and try­ing to fill the void has been chal­leng­ing.”
