WRRB Projects

In fulfilling its management responsibilities, the WRRB collects detailed information on wildlife, plants, forests and protected areas within Wek’èezhìı.  Following the Tłįchǫ philosophy of “strong like two people”, the Board collects both Tłįchǫ and scientific knowledge in its research. Each system of knowledge offers valuable information and together create a more complete picture that results in balanced decision making.  

To obtain this information, the Board undertakes various projects, research activities, and collaborative partnerships that promote increased knowledge of Wek’èezhìı.
