Caribou live in the rugged terrain of British Columbia’s mountains where snowmobiling may take place. Snowmobiling could cause caribou to move into steeper terrain, which may cause avalanches. The steeper terrain may also be a less suitable foraging habitat for caribou. The federal Species at Risk Act (SARA) lists some caribou as threatened or endangered, so it is important to respect the wildlife and its habitat by doing the following.

  • If you see caribou:
    • Turn off your snowmobile.
    • Do not approach the caribou.
    • Leave the area once the caribou have moved on.
  • If you see caribou tracks, do not follow them.
