This year, the Carcross/Tagish Renewable Resource Council (C/TRRC) met with roads ecologist Tony Clevenger to discuss ways to effectively reduce caribou collisions on our roads.
The solution starts with awareness, and we need your help to spread the word. The recovering caribou population depends on us to take part in the effort.
We recently worked with a graphic designer to launch a unique and well-received campaign raising awareness around caribou collisions on highways in the Southern Lakes region.
Annually, an average of eight recorded caribou mortalities are caused by motor vehicles in the Southern Lakes, and collision estimates are higher.
C/TRRC also supports Yukon Government radio ads and variable highway signs to reduce caribou mortality on our roads.
The Carcross Herd are now back in their winter range and will be seen on the Alaska Highway, Tagish Rd, and near Carcross and Mount Lorne.
We’d like to remind motorists to please slow down and drive carefully!
