Western Alaska Tribal Engagement

Native peoples in western Alaska have long-standing interactions with the lands, water, fish, wildlife and plants of the region. Alaska Native partners bring historical knowledge and a holistic perspective that is important to understanding the changes we are seeing today.  Visit our Tribal Engagement page​ to learn more ​​about our approach.

​Science and Decision-Maker Needs

The ability to achieve our mission - providing science products that can help support conservation efforts - depends on successfully identifying what information decision makers need.  Selection of topics for LCC focus takes place through workshops with decision makers and experts as well as Steering Committee deliberations.  The LCC has an ongoing requirement that project proposals include contact information for decision makers who would utilize the proposed products. Learn more about LCC priorities and how they are determined on the Science page. ​ 

LCCs in Alaska

There are five LCCs in Alaskapart of an LCC National Network comprised of 22 individual LCCs that span most of the continent.
