Hunt for the Future

The 2021 theme for the Alaska Migratory Bird Calendar Contest was “Hunt for the Future.” We focused on sustainable hunting practices, and the best ways to protect and celebrate "Alaska's Goose," the Emperor Goose. Students discussed hunting in a changing climate, and best practices to ensure a sustainable subsistence harvest in the future.
