A Conversation with Dene Tha’ Chief James Ahnassay

February 22, 2021

AWA’s prestigious Wilderness and Wildlife Defenders Award was presented to Dene Tha’ Chief James Ahnassay on February 22, 2021 as part 3 of 3 evenings making up the 22nd Martha Kostuch Annual Wilderness and Wildlife Defender Lecture.

The evening’s program, a conversation with Chief James Ahnassay and Cliff Wallis and a presentation and video of Bistcho Lake by Matt Munson provided attendees with tremendous first hand insight into caribou, the Hay-Zama Wildland – an International Ramsar Site, and Bistcho (Mbecho) Lake. You can watch a recording of the presentations in the following video:
