The Southern Lakes Wildlife Coordinating Committee (SLWCC) completed the Regional Assessment of Wildlife in the Yukon Southern Lakes Area.

The four year mandate of the SLWCC is now complete.

The regional wildlife assessment was prepared to fulfill our mandate under the Carcross Tagish First Nation and Kwanlin Dun First Nation final agreements.

Our key responsibility was to develop a regional wildlife assessment of wildlife and their habitat in the Southern Lakes area.

We worked with First Nations governments, other governments, wildlife management bodies, and interest groups, as well as the public and communities to assemble the best information to guide our work.

The Southern Lakes area has been home to Yukon First Nations for thousands of years.

Today, about 80% of the Yukon’s population calls this area home, along with at least 50 of the known
60 mammal species that occur in the Yukon.
