Just getting to St. Matthew and Hall islands is an adventure. Senior Scientist Aaron Wells made the journey as part of a multidisciplinary biological expedition to this most remote place in Alaska, located in the middle of the Bering Sea and over 200 miles from the nearest village. In early June 2018, Aaron flew from Fairbanks to St. Paul, Alaska. From there, he and the rest of the field crew boarded the R/V Tiglax (TEKH-lah — Aleut for eagle) for a 25-hour boat ride to the islands where they would spend the next two weeks conducting wildlife and vegetation surveys.
ABR is proud to be a corporate sponsor of the Interior Alaska Science Fair which took place Wednesday through Saturday of last week here in Fairbanks. ABR Senior Scientist, Sue Bishop, was the co-coordinator again this year, and ABR gave out two special awards for outstanding projects in wildlife biology and environmental science. The future looks bright with these innovative scientists!
