The purpose of this project was to compile baseline data on age, body condition, and the parasite and disease status of Rangifer as part of a larger program within the CircumArctic Rangifer Monitoring and Assessment (CARMA) Network to study herds across the circumpolar region using the Rangifer Health & Body Condition monitoring protocols to ensure that the information is comparable to data collected in subsequent years and in different herds of caribou and reindeer in the circumpolar region.
