The Eider Journey Science Program involves youth from Barrow, Alaska in field research and outreach related to Steller’s and spectacled eiders. Both species are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, and the coastal tundra near Barrow is the only known area in Alaska where Steller’s eiders nest regularly.

The five participants in the 2013 Eider Journey Science Program will be in Seward on August 5th and 6th to visit the Alaska SeaLife Center’s Steller’s and spectacled eider breeding facility and learn more about the Steller’s and spectacled eider recovery program. They will share their experiences working in the field this past summer and report on what they have learned about the breeding ecology of Steller’s and spectacled eiders near Barrow, Alaska.

We hope you can come down and support these students and their research!
