The goal of the Species at Risk Monitoring and GIS Mapping Program is to build First Nation capacity for species at risk and other wildlife management by engaging land-users and environmental technicians in wildlife data collection. The program goals are achieved in two ways: (1) sharing knowledge on basic wildlife monitoring skills, including information on the collection of observational data, GPS use and snow track transects; and (2) providing GIS training specific to mapping wildlife distributions.
This hands-on training is appropriate for interested community members, especially hunters, trappers, land-users and youth.
