Caribou Patrol Program
Caribou Patrol is an Indigenous-led stewardship program that promotes caribou conservation within AWN's traditional territory.
In 2012, AWN started this grassroots program in response to the declining caribou herd populations in west-central Alberta. It is a collaborative effort with support from Environment and Climate Change Canada, Foothills Landscape Management Forum (forestry and energy sector companies), Government of Alberta, and fRI Research.

fRI Research Caribou Program. On a few occasions, we have been able to give AWN community members the opportunity to work directly in the western science world and contribute to research projects. On the flip side, those at fRI have been able to learn more about the traditional knowledge of Indigenous peoples and that experience and knowledge transfer has led to a deeper understanding and mutual respect between and among those involved.We also like the North American Caribou Workshop where people from all over the world gather every 2nd year to discuss conservation of this iconic species on a global scale.
