NWT Tǫdzı have been listed as Threatened under the Federal and Territorial Species At Risk Acts The purpose of this recovery strategy is to provide an action-oriented planning tool that identifies how the conservation and recovery of tǫdzı or boreal caribou (Rangifer tarandus caribou, woodland caribou [boreal population]) can be accomplished in the NWT. This recovery strategy was prepared by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) of the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT), in accordance with the Conference of Management Authorities' guidelines and template for recovery strategies. There were many steps involved in the process; this included discussions with communities in the NWT, conducting Crown Consultation with regard to Aboriginal or treaty rights, and providing the opportunity for public comment. Their feedback was incorporated into the plan which was edited and reviewed by all parties who have the authority to manage this species, including Government of the Northwest Territories, Tłı̨chǫ Government, Wek'èezhìı Renewable Resources Board, Sahtú Renewable Resources Board, Gwich’in Renewable Resources Board, Wildlife Management Advisory Council (NWT), and Government of Canada.
