Russian hunters share their stories in Alaska

Posted on 24 February 2010    
Indigenous hunters Sergei and Vladilen Kavry, from Chukotka, in Russia’s far east, are visiting Alaska this month to share their experiences with Alaskan Indigenous people and biologists, according to the Alaska Public Radio Network.

The Russians have seen dramatic changes in the last decade due to global warming and they are hoping the exchange will help conserve marine mammal populations.

The trip was organised by WWF and the audio report below features an interview with our resident species expert, Geoff York.
