Yukon is undergoing unprecedented mineral exploration and development. Through the environmental assessment process, effects of the associated industrial activity are considered on a project by project basis. Given the concentration of multiple exploration activities and projects in some regions of Yukon, we must also address the need for long-term baseline data collection and monitoring to support the broader assessment of cumulative effects conducted through the Yukon’s Socio-economic and Environmental Assessment Board (YESAB) review process.
Solid baseline information on key fish and wildlife indicators has been identified as a limiting factor in assessments for areas with high levels of industrial activity. This report was commissioned to enable the Fish and Wildlife Branch to develop a coordinated and well planned approach to data gathering and preparation using sound, science-based methods that allow for the identification of probable responses to be used in support of the assessment of industrial activities at a regional scale.
This work is a contribution to the Yukon government’s inter-departmental framework for cumulative effects management.
