Overview:

Environment Yukon manages the preservation and maintenance of a biologically diverse natural environment and the sustainable use and conservation of natural resources. We can’t do it alone and that’s why we created the Environmental Awareness Fund.

The $30,000 Environmental Awareness Fund supports the efforts of groups and clubs to educate the public about Yukon’s natural environment, promote conservation and biodiversity, and encourage sustainable use of fish, wildlife and their habitat.

Environment Yukon takes a leading role in:

  • regulating and enforcing safe standards for air, water, and soil;
  • managing human impacts on fish and wildlife;
  • providing quality outdoor recreation opportunities in territorial parks and campgrounds;
  • and in addressing the challenge of global climate change.
