CPAWS is supporting creation of a huge new protected area by the local Lutsel K’e Dene First Nation and Parks Canada around and beyond the shores of East Arm of Great Slave Lake, called Thaidene Nene, meaning “the Land of the Ancestors” in Denesuline.
Learn more about this very special place at the CPAWS NWT chapter site.
Our shared goal is to protect the vast majority of this spectacular boreal and tundra landscape spanning 30,000 plus square kilometres, 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!
