Welcome to the public engagement for the Draft Conservation Plan for Grizzly Bears in Yukon!

About the Plan:

The Government of Yukon and the Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board are pleased to announce the release of the Draft version of “A Conservation Plan for Grizzly Bears (Ursus arctos) in Yukon”. This is the first territory-wide comprehensive conservation plan for grizzly bears in Yukon. The Plan is the fruit of a long process of information gathering and reflection about grizzly bears with First Nations and Inuvialuit in Yukon and in transboundary regions, Renewable Resources Councils, various organizations and wildlife management boards & councils, and the public across the territory.  The Plan presents a 25-year vision for grizzly bears in Yukon, where healthy and viable grizzly bear populations remain throughout their natural range in Yukon, for future generations of people and bears.

More information about the plan is available on the Board's website, and Engage Yukon.
