Nunavik Wildlife & you
Ensure the sustainability of wildlife in Nunavik
Les ressources de cette fiche
Fiche classée dans la faune
Wildlife is a renewable natural resource, that must benefit from favourable conditions to maintain its populations at acceptable levels. We have to ensure that wildlife will always be present in Nunavik and that hunting and fishing will still be possible.
The Nunavik Wildlife and you program is designed for students of Nunavik in Grade 7. It encourages students to ask about the conditions that must be in place for the renewal of wildlife resources.

The program was created in collaboration with Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Kativik School Board and is presented by wildlife protection officers in the classroom free of charge for the 7th grade. Participation by the teacher is essential. In fact, you are responsible for the major sections of the program, namely the presentation and the evaluation. Teachers should also carry out the preparatory activities. To make this task easier, a teacher’s guide is provided to give you all the information you need to facilitate these activities.
The educational program "Nunavik Wildlife and you" is complementary to the curriculum and develops the concept of sustainable use and management of wildlife resources and species at risk. It also allows students to examine the conditions necessary for the renewal of wildlife, especially the beluga whale.
Officer’s visit to the class – Duration : 1 school day (4 hours)
This program is available free of charge. When you register, the conditions governing the application of the program will be explained to you.
Preparatory activities – Duration : 30 minutes
These activities are presented by the teacher. They serve as a stimulus and make it possible to ascertain the students’ initial notions concerning wildlife as a resource, its needs and our relations with wildlife. The activities take place in class or at home prior to the officer’s visit.
The objective of the first activity is to make the differences between a renewable natural resource and a non renewable natural resource. Then, students will use a drawing to illustrate the use that humans make of wildlife. Finally, based on their knowledge, they must then put forward a hypothesis concerning the basic conditions necessary for the renewal of wildlife.
We invite you to send us your student’s drawings. They will appear in the Drawing gallery (in French).
The classroom visit consists of four parts. First of all, with the help of visual elements, students discover what is meant by "wildlife, a renewable natural resource". They overview the history of Nunavik, its wildlife and the importance of wildlife for the Inuit. Then, the officers will talk to them about their work, with the help of a game called The role of the officer. Finally, stories will be used that encourage ethical questioning to allow them to deduce the two essential requirements for the renewal of wildlife and thus to test the hypothesis that they formulated in one of the preparatory activities.
During the visit, the presence of the teacher is essential.
