Ka’a’gee Tu

Ka’a’gee Tu, “between the willows’, is a candidate IPCA also located in the Dehcho Region and encompassing 9,600 km2. The area is temporarily protected through the Dehcho region interim land withdrawal as part of the ongoing land, resources, and self-government agreement. Ka’a’gee Tu people wish that the area is protected in order to maintain their cultural heritage and the ecological richness of the land and water. The Kakisa River watershed is central to the area providing habitat for moose, beavers, fish and many waterfowl. Species at risk, such as woodland caribou and rusty blackbirds and Canada Warbler call the area home along with numerous medicinal and rare plants.
