The Beverly and Qamanirjuaq Caribou Management Board (BQCMB) defines these herds and indicates that their names derive from the nearby lakes around which each herd's calving grounds are concentrated (BQCMB, 1996; InterGroup Consultants Ltd., 2008).
Such an approach could also begin to address the lack of baseline information, especially in relation to available and documented local and Inuit knowledge, and contribute to community-based caribou monitoring activities in Nunavut (GN, 2011; BQCMB, 2014).
BQCMB (Beverly and Qamanirjuaq Caribou Management Board).
The BQCMB is made up of representative members of the Arviat and Whale Cove communities of Nunavut, the Tadoule Lake and Lac Brochet communities of Manitoba, the Prince Albert and Uranium City communities of Saskatchewan, and the Fond-Du-Lac and the Lutsel K'e of the Northwest Territories.
The recent push for even greater strategic planning came as the result of a study done by the BQCMB over the past winter which found the population was at a "medium-high" risk of continued decline.
Ross Thompson is a former fish and wildlife biologist who is now the executive director of the BQCMB. He has been working with the organization since it first began, and says the specific areas of the five-point plan are:
Ottawa: BQCMB.
Perhaps his proudest achievement was the BQCMB, created in response to a widely perceived crisis in the management of eastern barren-ground caribou herds.
After his retirement, he acted as president of the Northwest Territories Cooperative Business Development Fund and the Inuit Art Foundation, in addition to his role with the BQCMB. He also served on various local public service boards and committees in Ottawa.
The Beverly herd has three immediate neighbouring herds with traditional calving grounds recorded through Aboriginal knowledge and aerial surveys: the Qamanirjuaq traditional calving grounds about 400 km to the southeast (Heard, 1983; BQCMB, 1999a, b), the Bathurst calving grounds about 450 km to the northwest (Heard, 1983; Gunn et al., 2012), and the Ahiak calving grounds 250 km north along the Queen Maud Gulf coast (Heard et al., 1987; Gunn et al., 2000, 2013a) (Fig.
We used the annual levels of caribou harvested for the period 2004 to 2007 as compiled by the Beverly and Qamanirjuaq Caribou Management Board (BQCMB, 2005, 2006, 2007) from the territorial (Northwest Territories and Nunavut) and provincial (Manitoba and Saskatchewan) governments for the Beverly and Qamanirjuaq herds.
The Beverly and Qamanirjuaq Caribou Management Board (BQCMB) compiled caribou harvest levels from the two territories and two provinces primarily from estimates made by wildlife officers in the four jurisdictions.
