Report warns that NL woodland caribou are facing extinction

The Vancouver Sun is reporting that the “woodland caribou on the island of Newfoundland could soon be joining their mainland cousins in a race for extinction.” The report, released Wednesday by Nature Newfoundland and Labrador, says the woodland caribou population has shrunk by 66 per cent over the last decade. “With human land-use closing in on the animals’ home territory, predators are provided with “easier travel corridors as they search for prey,” the report states.
