Good planning can’t happen without input and support from local communities. We are working with local communities to support improving mapping resources and capabilities, increasing scientific knowledge of local wildlife, and providing information for planning decisions through the Beaufort Sea Partnership.
Our long-term goal is to promote spatial planning that conserves ecological and cultural values on both sides of the border. By helping governments make good management decisions now, we can have an impact for generations to come — and set an example for marine stewardship across the circumpolar Arctic.
