Jarmo At First Nations Species At Risk Forum 2015

On the evening of October 20, more than 130 people convened at the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation Community Centre to learn about the amazing work First Nations communities are doing to care for species at risk and their habitats across Ontario. The evening event was generously hosted by Chippewas of the Thames First Nation southwest of London, and presented as part of Carolinian Canada’s Ecosystem Recovery Forum series, with funding support from Environment Canada. First Nations from as far away as Wikwemikong on Manitoulin Island and Neyaashiinigmiing on the Bruce Peninsula showcased their species at risk projects with presentations and displays. Young conservationists from Aamjiwnaang and Chippewas of the Thames First Nations showcased the multifaceted activities of the “Antler River Guardians from the Four Directions” youth group over the past year. Bkejwanong (Walpole Island) First Nation presentations emphasized the strong linkages between nature preservation, traditions and language in local Anishinaabe culture. The event was a unique sharing of traditional knowledge, modern science and practical on-the-ground conservation practices -- a wonderful learning experience for all, set in the heart of Ontario's Carolinian life zone.
