2015-16 Annual Report now available online!

Posted on:

The Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board is pleased to provide our 2015-16 Annual Report online now! No paper copies were produced this year, in an effort to eliminate unnecessary printing.

The Annual Report focuses on the Board’s recent projects and accomplishments in the 2015/16 fiscal year. Additionally, the Annual Report describes the Board’s roles and responsibilities that fall within our mandate as the primary instrument of fish and wildlife management in the Yukon, established in Chapter 16 of the Yukon First Nations Final Agreements.

Some highlights of this year’s Annual Report:

  • The recommendation of 15 regulatory changes under the Yukon Wildlife Act, which passed through a successful public review process and were advanced by the Board to the Yukon Minister of Environment
  • The Grizzly Bear Conservation and Management Plan, which is working to understand local, Indigenous, and scientific knowledge about grizzlies before drafting the plan
  • The renaming of the Alex VanBibber Sharing the Land Scholarship, which recognizes a Yukoner with deep respect for fish and wildlife

The Board is proud to continually support and engage in meaningful work with First Nations, territorial and federal governments, Renewable Resources Councils, and the Yukon public to ensure the protection and conservation of Yukon fish and wildlife, and their habitats, for the benefit of future generations.

If you have any questions regarding the Annual Report, please contact us. The 2015-16 Annual Report (and previous reports) can be found on our Publications & Projects page, or by clicking the image below. Thank you for your support!
