Herschel Island is Yukon's first Territorial Park.
It is part of the traditional homeland of the Inuvialuit, and served as an American commercial whaling colony in the 1890s. A dozen whaling structures still stand, all of which have been restored or stabilized by the Historic Sites Unit. Because of its unique location and diverse cultural history, Herschel Island remains a special part of Yukon’s rich heritage.
Herschel Island is managed according to the Inuvialuit Final Agreement.
