  • Proposed Projects in the Bathurst Inlet Region Must Consider Trans-boundary + Cumulative Impacts | CPAWS Northwest Territories
    unclear potential for recovery despite severe harvest restrictions and is vulnerable to negative impacts from human land use CPAWS NWT is concerned that the combined impact of all these developments will jeopardize the herd s recovery and long term persistence We are particularly concerned about the roads currently proposed in the Kitikmeot region west of Bathurst Inlet which would cross the Bathurst herd s calving ground and post calving areas CPAWS NWT urges the NIRB to ensure that the cumulative effects assessment for each of these projects considers existing proposed and future developments within the entire Bathurst caribou range This would allow for an evaluation of trans boundary impacts to communities in the NWT that have depended on this herd for generations Impacts from marine shipping and road traffic associated with these projects on other wide ranging terrestrial wildlife and marine mammals that move between NWT and Nunavut must also be considered Will each of these projects develop infrastructure independently such as separate all season roads to multiple ports or will there be collaboration between developers to minimize the footprint and scale of impacts asks Kris Brekke Executive Director of the NWT Chapter of CPAWS Will similar projects advancing on the Bathurst range in the NWT be taken into consideration Impacts on wildlife and communities in the NWT must also be evaluated as these projects will not only have impacts within Nunavut says Brekke CPAWS NWT encourages proponents of these projects to work together to identify opportunities for shared infrastructure to minimize their combined footprint on the land and disturbance to wildlife Dialogue between proponents land managers and communities must effectively consider where and how development of our non renewable resources can proceed while respecting the needs of Bathurst caribou and other species in the region so they can thrive
