Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS)

www.cpaws.org

CPAWS is Canada’s voice for wilderness. Since 1963 we’ve led in creating over two-thirds of Canada’s protected areas. That amounts to about half a million square kilometres – an area bigger than the Yukon Territory! Our vision is that Canada will protect at least half of our public land and water. As a national charity with 13 chapters, 60,000 supporters and hundreds of volunteers, CPAWS works collaboratively with governments, local communities, industry and indigenous peoples to protect our country’s amazing natural places. We’re also on guard to ensure that our parks are managed to protect the nature within them.

Dehcho First Nations

Dehcho First Nations

www.dehcho.org

Dehcho First Nations represent all the aboriginal peoples of the Dehcho descended from the Dene, including Dene, Metis, status and non-status Indians. Dene are people of several cultures who were born to the lands that they have occupied and used since time immemorial in northern Canada. Dehcho Elders encourage Dene descendants to learn and follow the ways of the ancestors when using the lands of the peoples. People now refer to this as traditional knowledge-based land management. Dene continue to think of their lands in the way that other people have just begun to think of as “the environment.” For Dehcho Dene descendants, the word “land” means everything natural in the Dehcho territory: waters and air, trees, plants, berries, animals, birds, fish, and insects; what is on and what is below the surface of the land.
