ABSTRACT: Arctic national parks are magnificent: they are vast, protect a diversity of arctic ecosystems, and contribute to maintaining cultural traditions. Comprehensive land claims in the NWT, Nunavut and Yukon have played an important role in the creation of wilderness protected areas and are the catalysts for new approaches in cooperative management.
BIOSKETCH: Vicki is a doctoral student and is studying polar bear ecology and climate change in Foxe Basin, Nunavut. Before becoming a graduate student she was the Manager of Resource Conservation, of the Nunavut Field Unit – Parks Canada in Iqaluit.
