Building Habitat Resiliency for Wild Salmon in a Warming World
Time & Location
About the Event
Sue Mauger is the Science & Executive Director of Cook Inletkeeper, a community-based nonprofit organization with a mission to protect the Cook Inlet watershed and the life it sustains. Sue has been collecting temperature data in salmon streams around Alaska for the last 20 years to understand how our rapidly changing climate is impacting salmon habitat.
She will share how streams in the MatSu basin are responding to our changing climate and highlight work in the Deshka - the largest Chinook salmon producer in the Susitna River watershed - to map cold-water refugia which can guide conservation actions to build salmon habitat resiliency in a warming world.
