NBCKC's COP-15 panel on meaningful collaboration for caribou conservation was a success!


On December 19, 2022, the National Boreal Caribou Knowledge Consortium (NBCKC) hosted a panel discussion at COP-15 in Montreal entitled, "The National Boreal Caribou Knowledge Consortium - Meaningful collaboration for conservation."

The panel representing First Nations, Métis, industry, and government provided insights and perspectives about why meaningful collaboration across sectors is key for positive conservation outcomes using the National Boreal Caribou Knowledge Consortium (NBCKC) as a case study. Panel members touched on intergenerational knowledge transfer, addressing climate change, and local conservation initiatives among other things. They emphasized the importance of respectful relationships that value Indigenous Knowledge and culture alongside western science in conservation.
