In 2011, the Oil Sands Leadership Initiative Land Stewardship Working Group commissioned the investigation into the feasibility of creating a fenced woodland caribou predator exclosure or safe zone in northeast Alberta. A workshop with 43 technical experts was held in May 2012 to discuss appropriate guidelines or criteria that would be required to successfully implement a predator exclosure from a biological and ecological standpoint, or the science-based reasons why this approach should not be considered further. This report integrates conclusions and recommendations of the four feasibility evaluations and technical workshop.
