Interview on Bethel, Yukon Radio Station KYUK
Radio Interviewer: Adrian
J.J. Frost--Research Ecologist
Subject: Environmental Change across the YK Delta
How you can get involved:
The Local Environmental Observer (LEO) Network
The eyes, ears, and voice of our changing environment
LEO is a network of local observers and topic experts who share knowledge about unusual animal, environment, and weather events. These observations are based on local and traditional knowledge, and the experience of network members. With LEO, you can connect with others in your community to help detect, monitor, and find answers about environmental events. You can also engage with topic experts in many different organizations and become part of a broader observer community.
