TransCanada is once again supporting the Klinse-Za caribou penning project, which helps protect females and their newborns from predators during pregnancy and after birth. The penning gives the young ones time to grow enough to better evade predators once they are released. In July, 11 cows and five calves were released. For a week after the release, project volunteers kept watch over the caribou to keep predators away.
Last year, 10 cows and nine calves were released into the forest west of Chetwynd, British Columbia.
