the Rangifer Anatomy Project (RAP)
  • General public
The purpose of the Rangifer Anatomy Project (RAP) is to describe Rangifer in ways that are useful to indigenous hunters, educators, students, biologists, and veterinarians through posters, books, and electronic tools. Development of these resources involves detailed anatomical dissections and histological analysis in the laboratory, collaborative dissections that engage hunters, youth and elders during community caribou hunts in the North, and interviews that document knowledge of historical and contemporary uses of caribou for food, medicine, and tools. We anticipate that the process of this project and the final products that describe caribou anatomy from multiple perspectives will ultimately facilitate greater discussion about caribou health.
