Sebastian Beilak from Bierbza National Park in Poland spent the month of June observing operations at Kenai National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.  Bielak, who recently completed his doctoral work through Krakow University, visited Kenai because both reserves have moose.  After the devastation of World War Two, the Bierbza River region held the last remaining population of moose in the country.  While at Kenai, Bielak assisted with Breeding Bird Surveys, visited the Moose Research Center, and spent time observing other refuge programs, including combat fishing on the Russian River.  He also made several presentations on wildlife and national parks of Poland during his stay.

Sebastian enjoyed spending time with the seasonal staff in housing and enjoyed his experience. We hope that he found some ideas that will be useful when he returns home.
