Protection for
Yukon's Wilderness

One of the North's greatest wilderness area is under review for protection.

A long time in coming, the Peel Watershed Region is under review to be protected. At about 68,000 square kilometres, the region is almost as large as New Brunswick and makes up about 14% of the Yukon. The truly remote mountains and rivers of this region are one of the Last Frontiers the North has to offer. Unspoiled wildlife with it's prominent residents like the Grizzly, Black Bear, Caribou, Dall Sheep, Wolf, Lynx and Wolverine roam these endless seeming valleys and mountain tops, unaware of the existence of human kind. Breathtaking river corridors like the Wind River, the Snake River and the Bonnet Plume River established international recognition for one of the last wild places on earth. This delicate and sensible eco system needs protection, as so many other remote regions do, so we and future generations can see and experience the prestine beauty of nature.
The plan in development recommends protection designations for a suite of Special Management Areas comprising 80% of the planning area, where road access will also be prohibited.
“The recommended plan reflects the kind of large-scale wilderness protection which the Yukon public clearly expressed support for earlier this year in the DataPath poll,” says Gill Cracknell of CPAWS Yukon.
“The Yukon will gain worldwide recognition and respect for this timely and far-sighted conservation initiative,” says Dehn. “First Nations have been calling for protection of these lands for decades and now, given the overwhelming support voiced by Yukoners for large-scale protection in the Peel, the government stands to gain by fulfilling their commitment to honour the findings of the Commission and move this plan quickly into the implementation phase.”
