Description: 

Ever wonder how to easily track wildlife in the winter? A pilot study in the Sahtu Region collected such information helping to achieve the regional coverage necessary for monitoring changes to wildlife distribution brought about by industrial development, natural disturbance and climate change. Environment and Natural Resources’ issue #15 of the NWT al Research Bulletin (NERB) series is now available and highlights Tracking Wildlife in the Sahtu Region. Bulletins are issued regularly here to provide a summary of research findings or concepts for NWT residents and northern resource decision makers. Please feel free to circulate broadly.

Description: 

Annual report by the Forest Management Division of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources on forest health conditions across the NWT. The forest health program monitors whether or not the forest has the capacity for renewal after a wide range of disturbances, for the retention of its ecological resiliency while meeting current and future needs of NWT residents. The focus of the forest health program has been on monitoring insect and disease impacts in the NWT forests. However, since 2015, FMD has also been recording abiotic disturbances to address the uncertainty of forest ecosystem response to a changing climate. Examples of abiotic disturbances recorded during monitoring surveys include: drought symptoms (reddening of foliage, sun scalding scars, stunted and gnarled foliage), flooding, wind and snow damage, land slumps, and permafrost related disturbance (“drunken forest” phenomenon). General decline of some tree species is also tracked.

Mobile Core Bathurst Caribou Management Zone Regulations – UPDATED May 10, 2018. This Zone (in yellow) was implemented in order to let hunters know where harvesting is prohibited and assist in the protection and conservation of the Bathurst Caribou herd. The GNWT does not make caribou locations or numbers publicly available due to significant conservation concerns.

This is the final map of the harvest season.  The next map will be posted in the fall of 2018.
