• Team up with naturalists from Yellowstone, learn about ...

What to expect:

Volunteering is very light and travelers will have more of a hands on interactive workshop. Activities may include:

  • Meeting with a member of the Beluga Whale Alliance to learn about volunteer driven data collection and how they are protecting the Cook Inlet Beluga Population
  • We'll also 2 afternoons with the Alaska Center for Coastal Studies for "belly biology" (which consists of us getting on our belly's on the docks to locate the starfish and mollusks that live here)
  • Take a boat to a remote field station for a plankton pull. What is Plankton pull? dragging a mesh bag through the water to collect plankton and analyze under a microscope- this is the main diet of Oysters so we then visit an oyster farm and get to sample some too.
