Description

This event has now been rescheduled for May 23rd 7:30-9:30pm, at the CBC Studio 700 space at 700 Hamilton st in downtown Vancouver. Doors at 7:00, event starts at 7:30.


Join Chief Ken Cameron of Saulteau First Nations and Chief Roland Willson of West Moberly First Nations in a conversation about caribou recovery in British Columbia.

A new southern mountain caribou protection agreement is being heralded as a landmark measure to protect six highly endangered herds in Treaty 8 traditional territory in B.C.’s northeast.

A widely praised caribou partnership agreement for B.C.’s Peace region — forged among Saulteau and West Moberly First Nations and the federal and provincial governments — features habitat protection, including the designation of a new protected area for caribou and areas that would have interim moratoriums on industrial development such as logging.

It also includes an Indigenous guardian program, building on complex efforts by the two First Nations to save the

spiritually important Klinse-za caribou herd — part of the Pine River caribou population unit — through a five-year-old maternal penning project.
