Alaska Brief Newsletter – June 2016
Trustees is offering a trip of a lifetime this September to see polar bears in the wild. This four-day, small-group trip is exclusively offered by Trustees for Alaska.
In September and early October, the bears congregate along the coast and in the protected lagoons of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge where we can safely observe them up close. We’ll base our bear viewing adventures from the village of Kaktovik, an Inupiaq village nestled along the Beaufort Sea within the Arctic Refuge.
Each day we’ll take guided small boat trips out to search for the bears along the coast near Barter Island where the bears tend to gather during ice-free periods. You will have ample opportunities to observe, photograph and enjoy polar bears in the wild.
I hope you’ll join me for this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Pebble Continues its Attacks on Those Opposed to the Mine
Pebble continues its desperate attempts to intimidate its opposition by issuing more non-party subpoenas. Trustees for Alaska filed a motion to quash the subpoena of our client fisheries and aquatic scientist Carol Ann Woody.
