The Wek'èezhı̀ı Renewable Resources Board's (WRRB's) written submission and supporting documents provide the SRRB with additional information about the involvement of the WRRB in management of the Sahtì ekwǫ̀ herd in the Northwest Territories, specifically Wek’èezhìı. The submission concludes, "Since the Sahtì ekwǫ̀ herd has continued to decline since 2009, the Board believes that all peoples who harvest the herd must do their part to ensure the herd’s recovery. Users and managers must act now, in whatever ways possible, to protect the herd so future recovery may be possible. The WRRB looks forward to continuing a collaborative relationship with the SRRB regarding barren-ground caribou."
