- David Brower, founder of Sierra

Club Foundation

For over three years now, the Yukoners Concerned group have acted as a watch dog over the Yukon Government and oil and gas industry looking to conduct work in the territory.  

Our actions take place in many forms - one day we might focus on monitoring oil and gas activities followed by written letters to local media to ensure issues rest under the public's radar. The next, we could be reviewing and responding to YESAB applications and encouraging Yukoners to do the same. 


Since we like collaboration and know two minds are better than one, from time to time we may also collaborate with local organizations such as the Yukon Conservation Society, CPAWS and Frack-Free Yukon Alliance to organize public rallies, encourage attendance at public consultations, host out-of-territory guest speakers and more.


Lastly, but perhaps most notably, we started a petition in 2012 and it's still going strong with over 8,000 signatures to date. We are proud of the petition's contribution to what has developed into a solid opposition movement against fracking in the Yukon, and believe it will provide the ammunition required to ensure the protection of our land and water for future generations.


So on that note...

On your mark, get set...GO! Take action with us!

  • ​Helped lead the growing anti-fracking movement that resulted in the Yukon Party developing a Select Committee to study hydraulic fracturing, and place a moratorium on fracking in the Whitehorse Trough.
  • Developed a science based presentation on fracking and visited most Yukon communities to deliver the educational presentation.
  • Delivered hundreds of science-based comments in TV, radio and print media to communicate the primary message of fracking’s effects on our water.
  • Purchased advertising in local radio and print media to encourage Yukoners to attend the Select Committee hearings to ask for a ban on fracking.
  • Collected over 8,000 anti-fracking petition signatures by going door-to-door and distributing petitions through the communities.​
