The Lac Simon Anishnabe community, in collaboration with the Kitcisakik and Long Point First Nations, applied for and succeeded in obtaining federal funding to restore the Val-d'Or caribou herd.
By fighting to save the caribou, these First Nations communities are defending their food sovereignty, exercising their ancestral rights and upholding their age-old traditions and culture.
By fighting to save the caribou, these communities are also calling attention to the urgent need to protect our forests, essential allies in combating climate change.
Now it’s up to us to thank them.
Because what happens in the forests affects us all.
