Community-Based Conservation In Kaktovik

US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) - Develop a baseline of bear-human interaction data,and assist Kaktovik to develop a community-based polar bear awareness and bear-human interaction plan. We will continue ground-based monitoring of the numbers of polar bears in the vicinity of Barter Island in the autumn, as well as assisting the community to reduce human-polar bear conflicts and to address polar bear viewing.
