Marine wildlife viewing is good for Alaska's economy, and good for the participants' souls. But is it good for the animals? The answer is yes, if boaters and tide-poolers use care when near the animals. This publication describes laws and guidelines for observing whales, sea lions, walruses, sea otters, coastal birds, and other animals. Charter operators and nature tour leaders will find it a concise source of information that ensures the comfort of marine mammals and other wildlife as customers get thrilling views.
