This video is a recording of a presentation about the Moose Lake Access Management Plan (MLAMP), a unique agreement and collaboration between the Government of Alberta and Fort McKay First Nation. Now part of official policy, this plan puts in place measures to protect and restore caribou habitat, and also establishes a Guardian program. Hosted by Amanda Sheedy of the National Boreal Caribou Knowledge Consortium's Indigenous Knowledge Circle, presenters from Fort McKay First Nation (FMFN)  spoke about about managing the land in ways that support Treaty rights and traditional land use. Fort McKay’s Mike Evans, Lorne Gould, and Ryan Grandjambe shared how the Indigenous and provincial governments came to an agreement about how to protect the land, caribou and other wildlife species.
