A quote about caribou


Here is a quote from Roy Ipana, chair of the Inuvik Hunters and Trappers.

It’s about the decline of caribou, which is one of the most important stories of the century. (When you think about it.) Hunters must now apply for tags, which are government permission to hunt the animals.

“It’s not like long ago – not even like a few years ago — where someone tells you there’s caribou and you just go and you’re back the same day. Now you’re going to have to take a tent and spend a couple of days out there. We didn’t have to do that even five years ago.”

Everywhere it’s the same story. Hunters are going further and further on the land, often coming back empty-handed.
