Alaska Region, March 2, 2005
Print Friendly Version
Fresh from his field training assignment at Kenai Refuge, new Refuge Officer Isaac Bedingfield returned to Yukon Delta Refuge in February eager to get to work. Isaac accompanied Refuge Information Technician James Sipary on a village visit to meet local people and explain that Refuge Officers are here to protect the resources that the people depend upon.

The night before their visit to Atmauthlak, Isaac and his wife baked batches of homemade cookies, which he handed out the next day along with his business cards. As RIT Sipary noted, "Isaac was a huge hit and now has many new best friends."

Isaac continues to visit villages with other RITs to explain that following the rules helps the wildlife that local people depend upon.
