PBSG responds to proposed change in Foxe Basin harvest level

Foxe Basin subpopulation
The Polar Bear Specialist Group (PBSG) was invited by the Nunavut Wildlife Management Board (NWMB) in a letter dated June 28 to contribute its opinion about a proposed change to the TAH for the Foxe Basin subpopulation.

Regrettably, the PBSG was unable to respond in time to meet the NWMB’s original submission deadline.  However, after the deadline for submissions to the Board had passed, the Government of Nunavut, Department of Environment submitted a revised proposal for a higher TAH than it initially recommended. Thus, the PBSG feels there is still merit to responding to the NWMB about the proposed increase to the TAH, and to make its comments publically available.
