Haida Gwaii Semesters
Creating a new generation of natural resource leaders.
Developed for senior undergraduates interested in natural resources and the environment, Haida Gwaii Semesters provide students with an immersion opportunity to study in a remote,
resource-dependent community where the pressing social, cultural, ecological, political and economic issues facing natural resource managers around the globe converge at a local scale.
Students live on Haida Gwaii, attend lectures at the world-class Haida Heritage Centre at Kay Llnagaay (“Sea Lion Town”) in Skidegate, tour the forests and landscapes of the islands, meet with local experts and knowledge-holders, and become part of the Haida Gwaii Community.
Thank you to Dafne Romero, Joseph Crawford and Andrew Wright (Parks Canada), Jags, Dr. Hilary Thorpe, and Erica Rae Reid for photos and video footage

“This program is a great opportunity for us to learn about contemporary issues in natural resource management right where they are happening and to see the immediate effects they are having on communities.”
