Wildlife Management and Conservation Plan
The Wildlife Management and Conservation Plan is a keystone piece of work for our Council. It offers guidance and information to our Council members, government, co-management organizations, environmental assessment bodies, Inuvialuit and other indigenous organizations, and the general public. It also helps to inform research priorities and projects.
The Council is set to release an updated version of the Plan later this year (2019) that incorporates many years of traditional knowledge and science studies. Much has changed since the first version. For example, the effects of climate change have become more pronounced, but we also have a better understanding of how change may occur in the future. This Plan update will better reflect the conservation requirements of the Yukon North Slope.
