Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
Your vigilance could help us intercept
and prevent the spread of an unwanted biological

serious harm to Alaska’s native fish
and wildlife species, and their habitats.

The Alaska Integrated Pest Management program wants to recruit YOU as a Citizen Scientist. Our goal is to educate individuals who enjoy observing the natural world and are curious about learning more about what they see. The more citizen scientists looking for insect, plant and disease organisms throughout our state, the better informed we are on current issues that may impact our environment, natural resources and food supply.

a dual language booklet in English and a
native Alaskan language, Yup'ik, to help
educate the greater community in Southwestern

invasive species concerns unique to Southwestern
Alaska, which is home to a large community
of the indigenous Yup'ik people.
