the Alaska Sea Otter and Steller Sea Lion Commission!
Greetings from the Alaska Sea Otter and Steller Sea Lion Commission! We are so happy to be back advocating for Alaska Natives, tribes, Steller sea lions and subsistence hunters and artisans. We had to temporarily close our office but we are back open and fully functioning. Our base funding was running through another organization with a co-management agreement with the National Marine Fisheries Service, and there were financial irregularities so all work had to stop, including our subcontract. We have exciting trainings coming and even more exciting plans for 2019.
We want to hear from you! If you have any questions, concerns, or comments regarding marine mammal subsistence, sea lions, the changing environment or eligibility under the Marine Mammal Protection Act, please do not hesitate to contact us!
We may be reached by phone at 1-800-474-4362 (within Alaska), direct at 907-286-2377, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by messenger on Facebook. We look forward to hearing from you!
