The Yukon Biodiversity Forum provides an opportunity for a broad cross section of exposure to current field projects that relate to biodiversity assessment and monitoring in the Yukon.  It is an event 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.

The Forum was created by the Yukon Biodiversity Working Group in 2000.
