The world's largest lambing herd of Stone's sheep lives on Todagin Mountain in remote northwestern British Columbia. The importance of the herd to the local Tahltan people, sport hunting and the species as a whole prompted the protection of its winter range via the creation of Todagin South Slope Provincial Park in 2001. The herd's spring, summer and fall ranges, however, remained unprotected and in December 2010 were opened up to mining exploration. Our team of scientists and journalists are taking a preliminary step to ensuring sustainable development by researching the habitat needs of the herd. We will spend six months living on Todagin Mountain to map the herd's habitat use and tell the story of their changing environment.
