Who are we?
We are a broad-based coalition of Yukon people and organizations that is deeply concerned about the effects of the proliferation of ATV’s and their use in the wild lands of the Yukon. Many of us either own or have used ATV’s ourselves and recognize the right of owners and enthusiasts to use these machines in legitimate and sustainable ways, be it for hunting, work, wilderness exploration, or just plain recreational joy.
We base all our efforts on the values of responsibility, wise stewardship and the desire to leave a legacy for the next generation of a pristine wilderness environment.
Our goals are:
- Designated ATV trails in the Yukon wilderness
- ATV legislation
- Effective enforcement
Specific concerns include:
1. Damage to fragile alpine and wetlands
2. Harassment, disturbance and displacement of wildlife
3. Over-harvest in accessed areas
4. Cutting of new trails
