The webinar recording for the fourth in the 2021 SCBNA Student Affairs Webinar Series is now available on the SCB North America YouTube Page. Ecosystems have been occupied, managed, & conserved since time immemorial. Pairing Indigenous Knowledge with western science, each with their own integrity, can allow for a more comprehensive view of ecosystem changes and species interactions.

In this webinar, panelists discuss key concepts and case studies. We are grateful to the following panelists for sharing their fascinating insights, research and experiences with us in this webinar: Dr. Lynn Lee, Marine Ecologist, and Niisii Guujaaw, Resource Conservation Biologist, at Gwaii Haanas National Marine Conservation Area Reserve and Haida Heritage Site, Dr. Sonia Ibarra, Coordinator for the Tamamta Program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and Dr. Andrea Reid, PI. at the University of British Columbia Centre for Indigenous Fisheries.

The next webinar in the series will take place on May 26 at 12pm PT / 3pm ET: Conservation and Social Science: Harnessing Interdisciplinary Methods for Complex Issues. More information and the link to register are available here.
