Alaska Cooperators

The Alaska Unit exists by cooperative agreement between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADFG), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) and the Wildlife Management Institute (WMI). The WMI serves as a liaison among Unit cooperators nation-wide and as an independent voice for the Units on Capitol Hill. Research funds are provided annually by the ADFG, and through grants and contracts obtained by Unit scientists and cooperating faculty. Agencies of the U.S. Departments of Interior and Defense are primary sources of federal research funds for the Alaska Unit.
