MOU between ?Esdilagh and province aims to bolster moose population

A Cariboo region First Nation has signed an agreement with the Conservation Officer Service to promote wildlife sustainability.

A key part of the Memorandum of Understanding between the province and the ?Esdilagh First Nation is collaboration between Conservation Officers at the Nation on enforcement in its traditional territory.

That includes provincial enforcement of Esdilagh communal restrictions like the ban on hunting cow moose for First Nation members in its traditional territory.

Chief Roy Stump says moose preservation and increasing the moose population is the Nation’s ultimate goal. Stump says they want a sustainable wildlife population that everyone can benefit from.

The MOU also encourages prevention of potential human-wildlife conflicts, which may include education and awareness activities.

A signing ceremony was held Friday.
