Species at Risk Workshop

This past October, Aimee Guile, Conservation Biologist for the WRRB, and Board appointed member Moise Rabesca, attended the Species at Risk Committee meeting at the B Dene Adventures Camp. The camp, which sits on Chief Drygeese Traditional Territory, is accessed by a walk through the bush from Dettah, and many participants chose to stay at the camp overnight during the three-day workshop. The main topic discussed was revising the guidelines for writers drafting the Traditional Knowledge assessment reports for species at risk assessments. The workshop was a great opportunity to have discussions about the use of Traditional Knowledge in species at risk assessments while on the land. Changes to the guidelines made at this workshop will be applied to species at risk assessments once finalized this upcoming year.
