ACCAP Climate Webinars promote dialogue and a forum for discussion and information exchange between all stakeholders in Alaska. Accessible statewide, the webinars identify existing information gaps and how best to fill them. Each webinar starts with 20–30 minutes of presentation followed by discussion and questions from participants.

ACCAP has another exciting webinar scheduled for May 20, 2014 at 10am AK time. Kris Hundertmark of the University of Alaska Fairbanks will present a webinar titled:
Moose and caribou in the face of climate change: winners or losers?

Climate change will have impacts on animals living in northern environments that go far beyond shifting habitats, and some species may fare better than others. This presentation looks at factors involved in evaluating the impact of future climate change on moose and also presents the results of a recent study that predicts changes in the genetic diversity of caribou relative to changing climate.

Pre-registration for webinars is strongly encouraged. The audio portion of the call is through a toll-free phone line and the slide presentation is streamed via computer.
