2011 Arctic Ungulate Conference

Event Type: Conferences and Workshops

When: 22 August 2011 to 26 August 2011

Where: Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada


The Arctic Ungulate Conference is held every four years. The theme of the 2011 conference is "Challenges of Managing Northern Ungulates" and will address the difficulties of managing ungulate populations that are
faced with the unpredictable effects of climate change and an ever-increasing human presence on the land. The conference will also focus on the challenges associated with developing recovery actions for declining caribou and reindeer populations that are an integral part of Aboriginal cultures and ways of life.

The conference will provide an opportunity for biologists, managers, Aboriginal groups, co-management boards, researchers, students, and resource users to discuss northern ungulate research and management with their circumpolar peers.
