+49-69-79144-0-133 Postfach 190 440 Frankfurt/Main D-60326 Germany Chief Executive Officer

Directs WWF Arctic Programme and involved - together with our national organizations in the eight Arctic countries - in a number of projects, which are relelated to our following 8 objectives: 1. Disturbance and fragmentation of Arctic habitats and ecosystems is halted if not reversed; 2. Abundant population levels and historic ranges of native species are maintained or restored; 3. Ensure that any use of Arctic wild species is ecologically sustainable; 4. An environment in which the effects of contaminants and climate change on ecosystems and people are significantly reduced; 5. Increase recognition of the global significance of the Arctic; 6. Arctic communities meet their cultural and economic needs, consistent with WWF's conservation objectives; 7. Capacity exists for an environmental movement in the Arctic; 8. Any development is consistent with the other programme objectives. Quarterly conservation newsletter WWF ARCTIC BULLETIN updates frequently on circumpolar environmental policy, management ,and research issues.

As the Special Collection and Catalogue Librarian, I am responsible for maintaining and organizing the Yukon College Library's resources on Northern-related material. Materials with a Northern focus include specific industries like forestry, mining, or fisheries, or research on the flora and fauna of the North, or material on Northern and First Nations societies, often with a strong emphasis on history. Materials I deal with may be published or unpublished paper sources, video and audio recordings, maps, electronic sources, etc. As part of the Library team, I provide information through the kind of material that can be stored in a library and used by students and researchers. The main focus of the Northern material is on the Yukon but always within the context of the Circumpolar North
