By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

Quebec announced new regulations for Nunavik's sport caribou hunt Dec. 21, which will limit the 2012-2013 hunt in zones around the Leaf and George Rivers. The move responds to recent surveys by biologists who say they've seen a dramatic decline in the numbers and overall health of Nunavik's caribou. The new rule won't impact the Inuit harvest, but the province says their plan encourages Inuit to monitor and manage future caribou hunts.
