        La'ona DeWilde: Environmental Biologist

        This video produced by WGBH profiles La'ona DeWilde, an Athabascan and doctoral student in environmental biology. DeWilde chose her career because of her strong traditional belief in respecting animals and caring for the environment. Her work today involves helping local villagers record observations that can be used collaboratively with Western science to help solve problems that affect Alaska Native peoples, including climate change and water contamination.
