Sheep Management Update

At its fall 2014 meeting, the GRRB approved priority actions in the Dall’s Sheep management plan (GRRB motion 14-31) and is requesting that parties follow those actions now while working to finish the management plan. Of significance is that the 2014 survey results show a 29% decline in the observed sheep population since the 2010 survey. Nursery sheep numbers (ewes and young rams) declined by 32.5% since 2010 and by 44% since 2006. The GRRB will be working to implement the approved actions as precautionary measures for this sheep population.


Gwich'in Forest Management Plan

Community feedback is key to Gwich’in resource management. Over the years, dozens of community and RRC members have contributed to the building of the Gwich’in Forest Management Plan. Creating this plan involved a lot of work; from identifying the need for the plan, doing research, consulting with the communities and finally writing and recommending the plan itself. These tasks required the cooperation of many different groups and the GRRB is happy to see this plan ready for implementation.

There have been many people involved with the development and writing of this plan over the years and the GRRB thanks everyone who helped along the way. Notably, thanks to the FMP Steering Committee for working so hard to get us to this point: Mike Gravel from ENR, Norman Snowshoe and Jozef Carnogursky from GTC and Jennifer Walker-Larsen and Amy Thompson from the GRRB. They will be handing the implementation of the plan over to Martin Callaghan, Mardy Semmler and Kris Maier. Special thanks to Robert Charlie, who stood as the Chair of the GRRB for many years and was with this process from the very beginning.

Through the great efforts of many people, we have a management plan that we can use to sustainably manage Gwich’in forests for all people in the future. Congratulations on a job well done and thank you all.
