  • 2020 Wolf Management Proceeding - Level 2 CLOSED

On January 31, 2020, the WRRB received the “Joint Proposal on Management Actions for Wolves (dìga) on the Bathurst and Bluenose-East Barren-ground Caribou (ɂekwǫ̀) Herd Winter Ranges: 2020 – 2025” from Environment and Natural Resources, Government of the Northwest Territories (ENR-GNWT) and Tłı̨chǫ Government (TG), outlining proposed management actions for dìga in Wek’èezhìı. Following an initial assessment of the dìga joint management proposal in February 2020, the Board determined that a Level 2 review was appropriate, as per its Rule for Management Proposals. The Board opened the 2020 Wolf Management Proceeding on March 2, 2020 as a Level 2 review.

On March 9, 2020, after hearing from ENR-GNWT and TG, the WRRB held an emergency meeting and revised the procedure to be used to review the Proposal. The WRRB decided to amend its procedure for the review of the 2020 dìga management actions as proposed in the dìga joint management proposal to a Level 1 review. The Board decided to treat the 2020 dìga management actions as a pilot project only, and, as such, approved the proposed 2020 dìga management actions in the Proposal. 

On August 25, 2020, the Tłı̨chǫ Government (TG) and Department of Environment & Natural Resources (ENR), Government of Northwest Territories submitted the “Revised Joint Proposal on Management Actions for Wolves (dìga) on the Bathurst and Bluenose-East Barren-ground Caribou (ɂekwǫ̀) Herd Winter Ranges: 2021 – 2024” to the Wek’èezhìı Renewable Resources Board (WRRB). The Board reopened the 2020 Dìga Management Proceeding on September 4, 2020 and formally closed the record on October 23, 2020. Subsequently, the Board provided its Reasons for Decision Report, entitled “Reasons for Decisions Related to a Joint Proposal for Dìga (Wolf) Management in Wek’èezhìı” to TG and ENR on January 8, 2021.
