Dinàgà Wek’èhodì

Dinàgà Wek’èhodì is a candidate area under the Protected Areas Act. It is 790 km2 in size and is in the Wek’èezhii Resource Management Area on the northern part of Great Slave Lake. This area was selected to be protected by the Tłįcho Government because it is culturally important to the Dene and Métis peoples, and protects the biodiversity of the Taiga Shield and the Taiga Plains. It hosts species at risks such as boreal woodland caribou, wood bison, wolverines, rusty blackbirds, common nighthawks, barn swallows, and short-eared owls. The area is also a key migratory bird site.
