BIOMAP ALASKA: CITIZEN SCIENCE FOR ALASKA’S OCEANS
Maribeth S. Murray, Anthropology and the International Arctic Research
Center, UAF; and Howard Ferren, Alaska SeaLife Center
Investigators from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the Alaska Sea
Life Center are developing a citizen-science initiative to collect local
ecological information on the marine ecosystems along the Alaska region of
the Chukchi and Bering seas. Using a web-based tool community members will
be able to contribute their observations of the marine environment and of
species of interest including those that may be extending historical ranges
or that may be considered invasive. A companion marine species
identification guide, including photographs and English, Yup’ik, and
Iñupiaq translations, will be developed to aid identifications. The
information contributed will be publicly available and useful to the
development of ecosystem-based fisheries management in Alaska. Join this
webinar to learn more about this unique stakeholder outreach and survey
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. To register please fill out the
