BC partners with Tahltan Nation on wildlife stewardship
The government of B.C. and the Tahltan Central Government have announced they will work together on co-operative wildlife stewardship.
According to a government press release, there will be an increased presence of Tahltan guardians and B.C. conservation officers in Tahltan Territory this year. The provincial government says these efforts will support the Tahltan Nation’s work to improve wildlife populations, food security and community safety.
“Wildlife and wildlife management is critically important to the Tahltan way of life,” said Katrine Conroy, B.C. Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, in a statement. “The B.C. and Tahltan governments are committed to working together on wildlife management for the benefit of the Tahltan and all British Columbians. This is part of the reconciliation path that we all walk together in support of prosperity for future generations.”
