Based in Whitehorse, CPAWS Yukon works with aboriginal and public governments, local organizations, businesses and citizens to ensure the natural wealth we enjoy today is available for our children tomorrow. The organization’s goal is to preserve vast, meaningful tracts of the territory’s most beautiful and ecologically important forests, rivers, mountains and wetlands for all. CPAWS-Yukon wants land-use plans drafted before exploration and development occurs to avoid conflict, protect wild spaces and bring certainty to conscientious resource companies and other users of the land.
