        Steve MacLean: Conservationist

        This video produced by WGBH profiles Steve MacLean, an Iñupiaq scientist who works for The Nature Conservancy. In his role as a conservationist, MacLean works to preserve biodiversity in the Bering Sea, a unique marine environment being threatened by climate change. Brought up in the Alaska Native ways of knowing, he explains that Alaskan cultures are intimately connected with nature and suggests that people should not be separated from natural systems when considering solutions to environmental issues. MacLean strongly recommends a career in science for Alaska Native peoples interested in making a difference where they live.
