        Alaska Native Teens Help Researchers

        Learn how local students contribute to research about global warming in Alaska. Hear from students who are learning to use both Native and Western perspectives of nature to better understand global warming and its consequences. Examine why it is important to study changes in the environment—such as the transition of tundra to boreal forest, how the changes may affect the way of life in local communities, and how these communities will need to find ways to adapt. Video adapted from KUAC-TV and the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.
