NWT Status Reports and Assessments

Below is a list of all species assessed to date by the NWT Species at Risk Committee, including species that were found to be Not at Risk or Data Deficient. They are sorted according to the most recent assessment for each species.

Assessments are based on species status reports that include the best available Indigenous and community knowledge and science. For more on the NWT assessment process, including status reports, click here.
