Tutshi Lake/T’ooch’ Áayi Conservancy Management Planning

What was this engagement about?

BC Parks, the Taku River Tlingit First Nation, and the Carcross Tagish First Nation are developing a management plan for Tutshi Lake/T’ooch’ Áayi Conservancy.
The Tutshi Lake/T’ooch’ Áayi Conservancy is located in the far northwest of British Columbia. The conservancy is 19,640 hectares in size and protects the northern portion of Tutshi Lake near the Yukon border. The conservancies identified were established on May 31, 2012 expressly to recognize the importance of these natural areas to First Nations for food, social and ceremonial purposes.

How did my contribution make a difference?

BC Parks invited citizens to review and comment on the draft management plan. At this stage in the planning process citizens had the opportunity to provide information, express opinions, suggest alternatives and have their say on how the protected area will be managed.
