Caribou can be afraid of motor vehicle and chainsaw noise. However, if snowmobiles are used with their lights turned off, they can easily come close to the animal. Major work in a given area (e.g. La Romaine hydroelectric project north of Ekuanitshit) can have an impact on caribou ://   5.

The main aim of this study was to provide resource managers in the logging industry with information on population parameters, seasonal distribution and associated movements of reindeer in central Manitoba.

Population range, seasonal distribution and movements in relation to forestry concerns were monitored in 15 female reindeer in central Manitoba during to.

An overview is presented of the changing relationships, and their consequences, in the Russian Arctic and Sub-Arctic between people, industrial development, and wildlife. Our approach is to emphasize the ecosystem interactions that tie people to wildlife, and wildlife to the land, thus viewing industrial development in terms of its influence in As development expanded, the distribution of calving females shifted inland, reducing the number of calving caribou close to infrastructure (Noel et al.

). Such abandonment of habitat close to energy development has been similarly observed for pronghorn (Antilocapra americana ; Beckmann et al.
