Avalon Wilderness Reserve, NL, Canada

The Avalon Wilderness Reserve is 1,070 km2 of barrens and forests. It protects the Avalon woodland caribou herd, the most southerly caribou herd in Canada. The survival of this herd is a North American conservation success story. The herd had dwindled to only a few dozen animals by the early 1960s, but it rose to a high of six to seven thousand animals in the early 1990s. In 1998, it numbered almost two thousand animals. A rolling plateau, the area is dotted with boulders that were left behind by melting glaciers more than 10,000 years ago.Visit Canada. Epic Canada Route © Monika Newbound
