High Elevation Winter Range (HEWR) for South Peace Northern Caribou.

Data and Resources

Dataset Extent

Latitude: 54.3° to 60.0°
Longitude: -129.3° to -119.0°

Additional Information

Purpose

HEWR is based on resource-selection-function habitat modelling. Models used caribou telemetry locations to identify high elevation habitat areas that are heavily used by caribou. The HEWR is the basis for the Natural Resources Sector Board direction for management of northern caribou habitat. The designations are used by all levels of government in adjudicating land-use decisions.

Object Description

Object Name: REG_LAND_AND_NATURAL_RESOURCE.WLD_PNCP_H_ELEV_CAR_WIN_RNG_SP

Short Name: WLDPNCPHLV
Comments: WLD PNCP H ELEV CAR WIN RNG SP represents High Elevation Winter Range (HEWR) for South Peace Northern Caribou. HEWR is based on resource-selection-function habitat modelling. Models used caribou telemetry locations to identify high elevation habitat areas that are heavily used by caribou. The HEWR is the basis for the Natural Resources Sector Board direction for management of northern caribou habitat. The designations are used by all levels of government in adjudicating land-use decisions. This is a polygon layer.
