Our last Protecting Blue Nature episode focuses on Indigenous peoples leadership in marine protection. Aneri Garg speaks with Belinda Webb, Nunatsiavut Government’s Deputy Minister of Language, Culture and Tourism. Webb explains her connections to the fjords, fish and ice of Nunatsiavut and the importance of Inuit knowledge holders and scientific researchers working together.
Webb, an Inuit person who works and lives in Nain, Labrador, is involved in many collaborative governance and management that steward the land and water of Nunatsiavut including the feasibility assessment of creating a new IPA/National Marine Conservation Area Reserve adjacent to the Torngat Mountains National Park. Webb is also presenting at IMPAC5!
