The Biodiversity Working Group is a non-government open-membership group of those involved in ongoing biodiversity assessment and monitoring projects throughout the Yukon. The vision is in four basic parts:
- To foster partnerships and networking, -- including coordinated contribution to national and local initiatives relative to the Canadian Biodiversity Strategy;
- To deliver public education on biodiversity issues;
- To provide coordination among field researchers promoting long term data bases on key focal species;
- To integrate local traditional knowledge into on-going field data gathering processes.
The forum is designed as a single-day annual event. The purpose is to give an opportunity for a broad cross section of exposure to current field projects that relate to biodiversity assessment and monitoring in the Yukon. A day for community members and researchers to share information and foster partnerships, learn about Yukon plants, animals and special habitats as well as to identify knowledge gaps and species or habitats that need monitoring.
The sessions are open to all with an interest in Yukon biodiversity, its assessment, monitoring and conservation.
