The Yukon government recently decided to open one of the world's biggest natural treasures, northern Yukon’s Peel River Watershed, to development. Home to the largest constellation of wild mountain rivers in North America, the Peel Watershed is one of the last great intact ecosystems on the continent.

A coalition of the First Nation of Na Cho Nyak Dun, Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) Yukon Chapter, and the Yukon Conservation Society has launched a legal case to defend the Peel Watershed, represented by Thomas R. Berger, O.C, Q.C.

Donate to the Peel Legal CaseBerger and his clients have launched this legal action to force the Yukon Government to implement a Land Use Plan that would protect 54,000 square kilometers of wilderness in the Peel River Watershed from mining and other industrial development.
