Elk management strategies were the topic at a recent ministry of forests board meeting.

  • Apr. 2, 2014 9:00 a.m.

Harry Jennings, Advisor on First Nations Relations within the Cariboo for the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO) appeared before the board to discuss the proposed Elk Management Strategy.

Jennings spoke about the proposed management strategy and elk relocation. The naturally increasing elk population and its expanding distribution gives rise to challenges and opportunities in both natural resource stewardship and economic development.

Through the spring and summer of 2014, MFLNRO will facilitate public engagement to gather the inputs and evaluations required to inform the development of a proposed Elk Management Plan.
