Tenh Dẕetle, (Ten-thet-luh) means “Ice Mountain” in the Tahltan language. This remote conservancy is located near Mount Edziza, which is covered in glacial ice. The location is culturally significant to the Tahltan Nation and a variety of wildlife such as grizzly bears, moose, caribou, and mountain goats, are protected in this area.
This conservancy is located adjacent to the eastern boundary of Mount Edziza Park, along the shore of Nuttlude Lake in the north west of BC.
