"Balanced ecosystem is key, groups say."

Post by Koa » Mon Feb 06, 2012 5:49 pm

The Ktunaxa Nation and Wildsight often share a common goal when it comes to wildlife issues. In the case of the restoration of the South Purcell Mountain Caribou, both want to see a healthy, sustainable herd, and see the pending translocation of animals from Dease Lake as a positive step in doing so.

However, they are not in complete agreement as to the possibility of a wolf cull.

MLA Bill Bennett has said that he is supportive of the translocation, provided that predator control is in effect - meaning aerial culling of wolves that prey on the caribou.

Very interesting Koa, I feel that wolves too are naturally part of the ecosystem because they keep the population of caribou balanced. Once the population decreases due to predation there is a less chance of the caribou dying from starvation, though the wolf population will drop again and the caribou comes up again, it's a whole cycle that repeats over and over again. Isn't nature wonderful?
