The Tahltans Guardian Program has been active since 2015. The Tahltan Guardian Program will continue to focus on environmental stewardship monitoring measures and ongoing data collection processes based on local, Indigenous, and scientific knowledge sources. Guardians actively participate in various aspects of wildlife management including monitoring the effectiveness of hunting regulation changes, land use and hunter activity within and outside of new regulation areas, conflict wildlife and wildlife human interactions in Tahltan Territory.

Project Background

The Tahltan Guardian Program started up in the fall of 2016, due to concerns around wildlife in our territory. Mainly decrease in animal populations and increase in resident hunters. We started to expand it a little more with others and on-the-ground initiatives around environment, industry, and other concerns that were brought forward. The key priority was to get out on the land and make a presence. Regulation enforcement wasn’t good enough, no “On-the-Ground” data was being collected, and we just needed to be out there to see for ourselves what is really going on. The first year went well. We learned a lot about how big our territory is and some of the activities that are taken place. Showing our presence out there and collecting data to better wildlife management was the focus and to learn how we can adapt our program to best suit our territory. Being out on the land showed us what we need to keep an eye on it, and to better educate the general public and Tahltan members on other initiatives out there.
