Dr. DeMars is a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Alberta and has been conducting research on woodland caribou for the past seven years. Much of his research has focused on the spatial dynamics of caribou and their predators in working, multi-use landscapes. During the last three years, he has worked on developing province-wide predictive maps of boreal caribou habitat for British Columbia and Alberta and has also provided recommendations for implementing a new monitoring program for boreal caribou populations in the Northwest Territories. Craig has given numerous presentations on caribou ecology to various stakeholder groups including industry, government and First Nations and has presented his research findings at professional conferences nationally and internationally.
