Thelon CanadaAdd to Lightbox Download
Women from the Dene' Band collect blueberries in their village of Lutsel Ke' (aka Snowdrift) July 20, 2011. This huge reach of untrammeled country is partially the result of the creation of the Thelon Wildlife Sanctuary. Located equidistant from Hudson Bay and Great Slave Lake, the region now encompassed by the sanctuary was never permanently settled. The closure had far-reaching effects on all the wildlife. In addition, mineral exploration was kept out of the sanctuary. There are few places left on the planet as untouched as this.
