Marine Mammals Management
What We Do
The primary objective of the polar bear program is to ensure that polar
bear populations in Alaska remain a healthy, functioning component of
the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort seas ecosystems. Management responsibilities
are described in the Conservation Plan
for Polar Bears in Alaska (pdf - 366kb).
The latest issue of the FWS Polar Bear News (pdf - 835kb) provides a summary of recent polar bear management activities in Alaska.
