Southern Lakes Area

The Southern Lakes area is a magnificent region of plateaus, rolling hills, and broad valleys with an abundance of large, glacier-fed lakes. It extends from south central Yukon into northern British Columbia.

The area is home to many species of wildlife and most of the Yukon’s population. The increasing human population presents a challenge for wildlife managers because it has a profound impact on wildlife and habitat.


Teslin Lake, Marsh Lake, Tagish Lake, Lake Laberge and Kusawa Lake are all located within the Southern Lakes area.
