- INTERVIEW: Declining Caribou Herds (Interview begins after the news)
Caribou once ranged across most of the Northern Hemisphere. Herds that used to roam in Maine, Washington and other northern states have almost completely disappeared. Half of the world’s remaining caribou populations now occupy diminishing ranges in Canada’s Far North. The future of caribou herds around the world are in imminent danger. Aboriginal leaders from Canada recently met with top scientists to discuss joint solutions to ensure the long-term viability of caribou. What is causing the caribou herds to decline? Guests are Valerie Courtois, Sr. Advisor for Aboriginal Relations/Canadian Boreal Initiative and Dr. James Schaefer, Professor/Trent University.

Endangered species are of particular concern as we wait to see whether they will survive their flight through the Gulf of Mexico disaster zone, let alone reproduce.
