About Julian Fischer

Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Julian caught the Alaska bug in 1990 while working with sea ducks and shorebirds on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.  After completing his B.S. in Environmental Studies at the University of Vermont, Julian returned annually to Alaska to work on various migratory bird projects in the Arctic and Maritime National Wildlife Refuges throughout the 1990s.  Upon completion of his  M.S. in Wildlife Conservation at the University of Massachusetts, Julian moved permanently to Anchorage in 1998 to join Migratory Bird Management, Alaska Region, first with the Seabird Section and ultimately with the Waterfowl Section where he now serves as Supervisory Wildlife Biologist.  In his current role, Julian oversees the implementation of waterfowl surveys across Alaska to support harvest management decision-making and conservation planning.  He serves on the spectacled eider and Steller’s eider recovery teams, several committees for the Alaska Migratory Bird Co-management Council, and numerous ad hoc planning teams with a focus on applying aerial waterfowl survey data towards conservation-focused decision-making.
