In Alaska, greenhouse gas atmospheric build-up, ocean acidification, and global warming threaten survival of local marine and terrestrial life to a greater extent with more pronounced causes and effects than anywhere else. In Alaska and across the nation, the needs are great for changes in people’s knowledge and awareness; the needs are just as great for changes in people’s behaviors.
Alaska Center for the Environment is Alaska's largest home-grown citizen's group working for the sensible stewardship of Alaska's natural environment. Alaskans depend on a healthy environment for subsistence, recreation, jobs, and peace of mind. As the state grows, it is essential that human development occurs in harmony with our natural environment.
Deborah Williams, Alaska Ocean Fund and Alaska Conservation Solutions, is making known Alaska's global warming plight, is at work on remedies and is arming citizens with the information they need to act now to reduce carbon dioxide and methane emissions.
Bob Shavelson, Cook Inletkeeper, directs a community-based nonprofit organization that combined advocacy, education and science toward its mission to protect Alaska’s Cook Inlet watershed and the life it sustains. Inletkeeper’s monitoring and science work build credibility with scientists and resource managers, its education and advocacy efforts enhance stewardship and citizen participation. Together, these efforts translate into Inletkeeper’s ability to effectively ensure a vibrant and healthy Cook Inlet watershed.
Location: Alaskan coastline.
