Adapting to Climate Change in Alaska

Alaskans ranging from Unalakleet to Kenai to Ketchikan are witnessing changes to their environment due to climate change. Erosion, invasive species, forest fires, flooding, thawing permafrost, melting ice, and shifting animal habitats are many of the changes taking place. This video describes steps being taken by some communities to adapt to these changes and to maintain their lifestyles in the face of climate change.

Adapting to Climate Change in Alaska is also available on DVD at the Alaska Sea Grant bookstore.
