ICE SEAL COMMITTEE
CO-MANAGMENT OF ALASKA'S ICE SEALS
The Ice Seal Committee was established to help preserve and enhance ice seal habitat; protect and enhance Alaska Native culture, traditions-particularly activities associated with the subsistence use of ice seals; and to disseminate timely and reliable information about ice seals through research and outreach activities
"It is important to take what you can, when you can, so long as it is
done respectfully and without waste. Sharing with elders and others
who cannot hunt is important."
- anonymous hunter from Scammon Bay
