This two-page publication tells how climate change affects subsistence activities for Alaskans and describes observable changes such as less ice cover, more wildfires, and thawing permafrost. Subsistence target species are harder to find, and it is more difficult to travel. To adapt, subsistence users are advised to engage in community discussions, and meet with hunters, fishermen, and gatherers from other parts of the state to learn how they use the biological resources that are becoming more abundant and how they have dealt with scarcity.
