Protected Areas Development and Environmental Stewardship, Eeyou Istchee (Crees of northern Quebec)
This project has been designed in partnership with the Grand Council of the Crees of Eeyou Istchee to generate a comprehensive “Cree Regional Conservation Strategy” to expand and articulate a Cree vision for a network of terrestrial and marine protected areas throughout their regional territory. This project also aims to identify priority research to support the protection and rehabilitation of habitats important to Cree environments and land-based livelihoods. In this endeavour, we also collaborate with the Waterfowl Habitat Taskforce, a cooperative initiative of Cree coastal communities of Eeyou Istchee.
