The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) will host a
webinar entitled "Responses of Marine Mammals to Environmental Changes
in the Arctic" on Tuesday, 11 June 2013 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. AKDT.
The webinar will be presented by Kathy Huntington, Alaska Veterinary
Pathology Services (AVPS).

Climate variability and change pose several threats to marine mammals
across the Arctic. Potential impacts include alterations in pathogen
pathways, effects on body condition due to shifts in the food web, and
changes in toxicant exposures. The lack of integrated long-term data on
health, diseases, and toxicant effects in arctic marine mammals severely
limits our ability to predict the effects of climate change on marine
mammal health. During this presentation, the observed and anticipated
impacts to marine mammals to environmental changes will be discussed,
including the unusual mortality event that occurred in seals and walrus
in northern Alaska in 2011. Data and information for understanding
marine mammal health in the Arctic will also be discussed.
