Bistcho Lake: Indigenous Leadership in Conservation


The Dene Tha’ First Nation are restoring balance in the Bistcho Lake area and working towards long-term conservation.

The Case for an IPCA at Bistcho Lake


An IPCA is an opportunity to combine existing environmental monitoring programs and an Indigenous-led Guardians program to manage the greater Bistcho Lake area.

We invite you to learn about what makes Bistcho special – both culturally and environmentally – and why this place needs protection as an IPCA.

The conservation and management of the Bistcho Lake region cannot wait until it is formally protected. See our projects.
