To all interested organizations & associations,

The Department of Environment and the Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board want to hear from you through a public survey to help develop the Yukon Grizzly Bear Conservation and Management Plan. We want to know what experiences, beliefs, knowledge, and opinions Yukoners have about grizzly bear conservation and management.

The public survey will complement information already gained from in-depth workshops and discussions with First Nation governments, the Inuvialuit, mandated boards and councils, and interest groups. We want to include as much available local, traditional and scientific information as possible to develop the plan.

Any Yukoner with an interest in grizzly bear conservation and management is encouraged to fill out the survey. The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete and will close on May 26, 2017. You can find the public survey at the following direct link: https://survey.gov.yk.ca/Grizzly-Yukon.aspx The survey can also be accessed through www.env.gov.yk.ca and www.yfwmb.ca.

Thank you for your commitment to the conservation and management of grizzly bears in Yukon.

 

Sincerely,

 

Tom Jung, Environment Yukon, and Frank Thomas, Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board
