Caribou Habitat Restoration

Woodland caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou) boreal and southern mountain populations are designated as threatened under Canada’s Species at Risk Act and Alberta’s Wildlife Act. Many tools are being used towards achieving self-sustaining caribou populations in Alberta including habitat restoration on seismic lines.

Scott Wilson is a Senior Environmental Analyst with Silvacom’s Energy and Environment group. He partakes in the statistical analysis, reporting, stakeholder engagement, and project management of various projects for industrial and governmental clients. After completing a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Economics and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental and Conservation Sciences at the University of Alberta, Scott went on to complete a master’s degree in Agricultural and Resource Economics, again at the University of Alberta.
