The state of the Yukon environment is described from several perspectives.
In this section we present highlights from five reporting units
(click map above). The reporting units follow the natural boundaries
that separate the Yukon's diverse landscape into 23 ecoregions.
These ecoregions differ in their biological and physical characteristics
such as vegetation types, topography and climate (a more detailed map is available here). The focus of the
overall report is to describe the interconnections between our
society, economy and natural ecosystems. Read on and learn more
about some of the problems and challenges that face us in different
parts of the Yukon.
