A new Science paper co-produced by Indigenous and Western authors highlights how Indigenous rights can pick up where endangered species laws fall short in recovering species to culturally-meaningful levels. The paper explores how three culturally-important species - caribou, bison, and salmon - are falling through the cracks of endangered species laws, and how a resurgence of Indigenous-led conservation may provide the required support to recover these species to abundance that once again support meaningful food sovereignty and cultural connection.
