Zhashagi, the Ojibway word for “Blue Heron”, is a wing of Blue Heron Environmental that focuses specifically on providing assistance to Indigenous peoples, with respect to:
- Environmental training and mentorship for individuals and/or committees;
- Reviews of Environmental Assessments, permit applications, and environmental management plans for resource-based development projects;
- On-site support for environmental monitoring;
- Helping to bridge the gap between Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) and western science.
Our goal is to encourage the healthy growth of communities.
We seek to provide capacity that goes beyond just the individual.
By providing long-term mentorship services, Zhashagi can help communities give a voice to their environmental concerns and interests throughout the life-span of a project.
