Thaidene Nene: Protecting the East Arm of Great Slave Lake

Our shared goal is to protect over 30,000 km2 of this spectacular boreal and tundra landscape, where aboriginal people still live in balance with abundant populations of wildlife, including caribou and fish.

Much work has been done toward protecting Thaidene Nene. Time is now of the essence to finalizing an agreement between the Lutsel K’e Dene First Nation and Parks Canada.

Public support is critical. Voice your support here!
