For the health of our environment and for our enjoyment of nature, maintaining biodiversity in wetlands across the boreal forest of Canada is crucial.
Together with the Treaty 8 Tribal Corporation and regional communities, we develop a comprehensive, 77-million-acre map of wetlands in the Akaitcho region of the Northwest Territories. This map is a critical source of ecological and cultural information to support the land-use planning process of the Akaitcho region. It also supports the Łutsël K’e Dene First Nation in their leadership to establish Thaidene Nëné IPCA.
