Upper Gladys River/Watsíx Deiyi Conservancy
About This ConservancyUpper Gladys River/Watsíx Deiyi Conservancy was established as a result of the Wóoshtin Wudidaa Atlin Taku Land Use Plan and Taku River Tlingit First Nation Strategic Engagement Agreement. The conservancy contains traditional use and occupation areas for the Taku River Tlingit First Nation and is part of a large core network of contiguous protected areas.
The conservancy is centred on Eva and Angel lakes and includes the headwaters of the Gladys River. The Tlingit name (Watsíx Deiyi) means “caribou trail,” after the major caribou trail that extends the length of the Upper Gladys River valley.
The conservancy is located approximately 50 kilometres east of Atlin, in the asserted traditional territory of the Taku River Tlingit First Nation.
This site is under construction; more information on this conservancy will be added when it becomes available.
