The Advisory Committee for Cooperation on Wildlife Management (ACCWM), made up of six wildlife management boards, decided, as a matter of priority, to form the Bluenose Caribou Management Plan Working Group to develop a plan for the three caribou herds. This plan was developed with involvement by the 17 communities, in six land claim areas, that harvest these caribou.

Gwich'in Forest Management Plan

Community feedback is key to Gwich’in resource management. Over the years, dozens of community and RRC members have contributed to the building of the Gwich’in Forest Management Plan. Creating this plan involved a lot of work; from identifying the need for the plan, doing research, consulting with the communities and finally writing and recommending the plan itself. These tasks required the cooperation of many different groups and the GRRB is happy to see this plan ready for implementation.

There have been many people involved with the development and writing of this plan over the years and the GRRB thanks everyone who helped along the way. Notably, thanks to the FMP Steering Committee for working so hard to get us to this point: Mike Gravel from ENR, Norman Snowshoe and Jozef Carnogursky from GTC and Jennifer Walker-Larsen and Amy Thompson from the GRRB. They will be handing the implementation of the plan over to Martin Callaghan, Mardy Semmler and Kris Maier. Special thanks to Robert Charlie, who stood as the Chair of the GRRB for many years and was with this process from the very beginning.

Through the great efforts of many people, we have a management plan that we can use to sustainably manage Gwich’in forests for all people in the future. Congratulations on a job well done and thank you all.
