Next step in protection of Nahanni watershed

Last year I reported on the planned expansion of Nahanni National Park, one of Canada’s great national parks, and a World Heritage site. Recently, the federal government took one more step, temporarily protecting the headwaters of the Nahanni for the creation of a new national park, to be called Nááts’ihch’oh [pronounced naah-tseen-CHO]. The last outstanding (but very important) step is finalizing the borders of the park. Without final borders, park protection is not yet guaranteed. Visit the CPAWS website for additional information.
