Scientists Help Prioritize Initiatives to Improve Local Research and Resource Management

As a major part of the scientific and resource management collaborations with the Village of Port Graham, Alaska, scientists from the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science met with the local community and participated in the Wisdom Keeper Workshop on May 18, 2007. NCCOS scientists met with village Elders, members of the Village Council, and scientists from state and federal agencies to discuss Traditional Ecological Knowledge, and local resource, management, and policy issues.  Elders and scientists answered questions and helped to prioritize the research and management initiatives of the community.
