Iqaluit’s caribou harvest for 2023-24 is closed, GN announces
Community’s seasonal quota of 74 caribou has been reached
The caribou harvest in Iqaluit for 2023–2024 is closed, the Government of Nunavut announced late Wednesday.
The community’s allocation of 74 caribou of the total allowable harvest from the Baffin Island caribou population has been reached, the GN said.
No more harvesting is allowed without an approved community allocation. Any unapproved harvesting this season is in violation of the Nunavut Wildlife Act.
In its announcement, the GN said it continues to limit harvests every year to promote the recovery of caribou populations.
