Habitat Protection Areas & Special Protection Areas

YG photo

Habitat Protection Area and Special Management Area plans are developed to maintain important features of Yukon's natural or cultural environment for the benefit of residents and visitors, while respecting the rights of First Nations. Special Management Areas are identified in Chapter 10 of First Nation final agreements. Planning for Habitat Protection Areas may occur outside of final agreements as set out in the Yukon Wildlife Act, e.g. regional land use plans.
