Wildlife Species in the GSA
The Gwich'in Settlement Area is gifted with a variety of landscapes and habitat that are home to an outstanding diversity of mammals, birds and fish, but also amphibians, reptiles, mussels, insects and plants. You can have a glimpse of most species present, along with their status, by downloading the most recent report on species found in the NWT:
NWT Species Reports at NWT Species at Risk
NWT Biodiversity Action Plan at NWT Environment and Natural Resources (ENR)
You can also find additional information on the larger species at ENR's Web site
Our books, Gwich'in Words about the Land and More Gwich'in Words about the Land, are also a good source of information about wildlife found in the GSA.
