Cook Inlet Beluga Recovery Implementation Task Force

2018-2020

Beluga Whale Alliance (BWA) is a member of the Outreach Committee of the Cook Inlet Beluga Recovery Implementation Task Force. The primary role of the task force is to engage the expertise of researchers, managers, communicators, and various other stakeholders to advise NOAA Fisheries and the Alaska Department of Fish & Game on specific topics and issues relating to the recovery of the Cook Inlet belugas. The task force provides guidance and recommendations for effective recovery action implementation and helps prioritize limited resources to make the most difference in achieving recovery. The focus is on short-term actions that can be completed in 2-5 years.

Kenai Peninsula Fish Habitat Partnership

2017 - Current

The purpose of the Kenai Peninsula Fish Habitat Partnership is to create and foster effective collaboration to maintain healthy fish, people, habitat and economies in Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula Borough — home to the Kenai River, which is frequented seasonally by Alaska’s critically endangered Cook Inlet belugas.
