NOAA Live! Alaska
Interactive webinar connecting NOAA Fisheries scientists and partners with Alaska students, teachers and local communities.
December 15, 2020 - Youth Programs on St. Paul Island, Alaska
Lauren Divine and Veronica Padula, Aleut Community of St. Paul Island Tribal Government
In the middle of the Bering Sea, between Russia and North America, is the Alaskan island of St. Paul - an incredible place with an amazing community and some of the coolest wildlife in the world. There is so much to learn from and about this special place. Join us to learn how the Aleut Community of St. Paul Tribal Government involves youth on many local research programs on St. Paul Island, Alaska, including projects on northern fur seals, reindeer, seabirds and marine debris! Kids are always excited to be involved in research and are some of the best scientists we have! NOAA partners with the St. Paul and St. George tribal governments on both research and education projects.
(The webinar will also be live streamed via Facebook Live on the NOAA Fisheries Alaska Facebook page - @NOAAFisheriesAK.)
NOAA Live! Alaska is a weekly series of interactive webinars, aimed at Alaska students in grades 2-8 (but of interest to all ages!). We will feature NOAA scientists, educators and partners to explore NOAA’s work in Alaska. Learn about current research. Connect to what’s going on in your communities. Join us to ask questions to our presenters and learn more about weather, oceanography, marine life, fisheries and more in Alaska!
NOAA Live! Alaska is coordinated by NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center, NOAA's Alaska Regional Collaboration Network, and the National Weather Service. The series is modeled on the NOAA Live! webinars coordinated by Woods Hole Sea Grant and the NOAA Regional Collaboration Network. Contact Lisa.Hiruki-Raring@noaa.gov with any questions.
