Species at Risk Monitoring and GIS Mapping Program

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.
