Overview
With support from the Hewlett Foundation and many other donors, the Nature Conservancy is partnering with the Lutsel K’e Dene First Nation to protect the 7 million acres of the Thaidene Nene property in northern Canada. The Thaidene Nene region spans from the Boreal Forest to tundra, and is part of the largest roadless landscape in North America. Permanent protection will prevent mining and other commercial development and protect the ecosystem, which is home to grizzly bears, wolves, and some of the last free-ranging herds of barren-ground caribou. This grant will provide support to the Nature Conservancy and its partners in negotiating the boundaries of the proposed area and establish a trust for the permanent protection of Thaidene Nene.
