The Heiltsuk Nation created a coordinated and integrated Guardian Watchmen program to protect the health of cultural and natural values of its traditional territory, and to sustainably manage its resources. Monitoring and stewardship are integral elements in implementing effective marine and land use plans, and ensuring important cultural and natural resources are protected.

For more information about Heiltsuk stewardship efforts, visit the Heiltsuk Tribal Council and its Heiltsuk Integrated Resource Management Department, as well as the Qqs Projects Society website.
