Proposed Nááts'ihch'oh National Park Reserve
The creation of Nááts’ihch’oh National Park Reserve is being negotiated in collaboration with the Sahtu Dene and Métis people. When completed, it will protect the headwaters of the South Nahanni River and include important habitat for grizzly bear and caribou. With about 7600 km2 under consideration, and located adjacent to the Nahanni National Park Reserve, it will enhance the protection of the South Nahanni watershed.
“Water is important to life and it is important to us to save our water. The South Nahanni River watershed will be well protected through Nááts’ihch’oh and that will be a very good inheritance to leave for future generations.”
Chief Frank Andrew, member of Tulita Nááts’ihch’oh Working Group.
