Public Survey on Grizzly Bear Conservation and Management Plan in Yukon

The Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board and the Department of Environment are working together to produce a draft Grizzly Bear Conservation and Management Plan for Yukon.

The plan will provide direction for addressing the range of values and issues related to grizzly bear conservation and management across Yukon. All available local, traditional, and scientific knowledge will be used to develop the plan.

We are asking all Yukoners and those in transboundary communities (Atlin, Aklavik, Fort McPherson etc.) who have an interest in grizzly bear conservation and management to complete this survey. We want to hear about your experiences, beliefs, perceptions, and opinions about grizzly bear conservation and management. The information collected will help develop the plan.

The survey should take less than 20 minutes and can be submitted online or printed and returned by mail. Printed copies will be made available at the district conservation offices. Please provide your completed survey by May 27.

The Yukon Bureau of Statistics is hosting this survey on behalf of the Department of Environment and the Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board. The information from your responses will be shared with the department and the board for analysis and reporting purposes.  Your responses are anonymous, and individual respondents will not be identified in any reports or associated materials. Information collected through this survey is protected in accordance with the Statistics Act and the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act. If you have questions about confidentiality, please contact the Yukon Bureau of Statistics at 867-667-8029.

If you have any questions regarding the content of this survey please call the Department of Environment at 867-456-3645 or 1-800-661-0408 extension 3645 or the Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board at 867-667-5835. A report summarizing the results of the survey will be available on the Department of Environment and Yukon Fish and Wildlife Management Board websites later this year. There will be more opportunities to provide your feedback once the draft plan has been developed.
