Wekʼèezhìı Renewable Resources Board Holds Public Hearing

April 9-11, 2019 the Wekʼèezhìı Renewable Resources Board (WRRB), will be holding a Public Hearing in Behchokǫ̀ to discuss the “Joint Proposal on Management Actions for the Bluenose-East Ekwǫ̀ (Barren-ground caribou) Herd 2019-2021” which outlines proposed management actions for the Sahtì Ekwǫ̀ (Bluenose-East caribou) herd in Wek’èezhìı. The proposal was submitted to the WRRB by the Tłı̨chǫ Government and Environment and Natural Resources. The WRRB considers any restriction of harvest or component of harvest as the establishment of a Total Allowable Harvest and in such cases is required to hold a public hearing. The WRRB has determined that the proposed management actions are such that the Board must undertake a Level 3 review, as per its Rule for Management Proposals, which includes holding a Public Hearing. If you are interested in attending, the hearing is open to the public, and there will be time set aside for anyone wishing to provide comments on the proceedings.
