Green Initiatives & Environmental History for: Yukon
Before the arrival of the Europeans, northern and the central parts of Yukon escaped the effects of glaciation. The land of southern Yukon were covered with dense layers of ash after the volcanic eruption from Mount Churchill. In the beginning of 19th century, trading expeditions started in the area with fur, and this brought European incursions followed by the Union Telegraph Expedition. At the end of nineteenth century gold miners also arrived in the area due to the rumours of finding gold in the area. It was also followed by the Gold Rush of Klondike in the year 1897, which led to the formation of a separate Yukon territory in 1898. The archeological significance of Yukon was auggmented with the findings of some of the earliest evidence of human occupation after conducting archeological excavation.
The shape of the region is like a right-angled triangle and it borders the U.S. state of Alaska in the West. The Northwest teritories are located in the east and British Columbia in the South. Yukon is home to American black bears, coyotes, moose, bisons, Canadian lynx, weasel, wolves etc. A wide variety of birds like swans, faro cranes, owls, eagles etc. Among the most common fishes that are available here is the arctic grayling, burbot, arctic char, bull trout, inconnu, northern pike and many others. Some of the plant species found in Yukon are kluane draba, olive spring beauty etc. The presence of all these natural beauty is helping not only in the promotion of tourism but also angling activities in the region.
