The Haida recognize that nature and culture are intrinsically connected, and that the protection of the natural and cultural values on Haida Gwaii is essential to sustaining their culture.

The Council of the Haida Nation has a Guardian Program that works both in Fisheries, monitoring river systems and fishing activity, and Heritage and Natural Resources, surveying the land base for Cultural Features.

For more information about Haida stewardship efforts, visit the Council of Haida Nation website.
