THE HOTTEST SOCIETY IN THE NORTH

AMPHIBIANS IN SOUTHEAST ALASKA

This study aims to better understand amphibians in Southeast Alaska in order to promote improved management and conservation of these species. I hope to identify alternative methods for gathering this information through the use of community knowledge, indigenous knowledge, citizen science and service learning projects. We ask that you support this initiative by taking a few moments to fill out this survey to the best of your ability. We guarantee that your responses to our questions will remain anonymous and that they will not be legally incriminating. Completing the survey indicates that you have read and agree to the “Informed Consent Form." I thank you for your time.

This research is part of a University of Alaska Fairbanks student’s doctoral thesis and is funded through the Global Change Student Grant Competition.
