Alaska Region, November 2, 2004
Print Friendly Version
In the midst of a severe snow storm on Nov 2, a delegation of 9 community leaders from Kamchatka, Russia and surrounding areas came out of the cold to visit the Yukon Delta Refuge headquarters/visitor center in Bethel, Alaska. Their 10-day Alaska trip was arranged through The Pacific Environment, a non-profit organization that works through Pacific Rim environmental groups to promote cultural exchange on issues of community development, indigenous rights and natural resource protection. The delegation toured visitor center exhibits and heard presentations from Refuge Information Technician Joe Asuluk and Myron Naneng, President of the Association of Village Council Presidents.
