Protecting the Peace

Indigenous Led Conservation in the Western Boreal Forest

Dr. Faisal Moola


Dr. Faisal Moola is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Guelph. Prior to joining Guelph University, he worked for the David Suzuki Foundation for over 15 years, where he was the organization’s Director General for Ontario and Northern Canada. Dr. Moola’s talk will address how Indigenous Peoples, like the Dunne_Zaa and Cree First Nations of the Peace Region are exerting their sovereignty in protecting large swaths of their traditional territories as Tribal Parks and other Indigenous-led conservation areas and how such Indigenous-led efforts are critical to the future of nature conservation in Canada.

There will be a pizza lunch for graduate students at 12:00. Please email to RSVP for the lunch.
