The Alaska Marine Conservation Council is proud to kick off their first Climate Change & Ocean Acidification Speaking Tour in May of 2008.

Return to this site for information about speaking locations and venues, video and audio clips, and more.

The purpose of the tour is to raise awareness about warming and acidification in Alaska and implications for indigenous peoples, fisheries and the globally significant Arctic ecosystem. The storytellers will put a human face on the issues to move citizens from perceiving the problem as something either beyond their reach or not real to one that demands their positive political action.

Please visit for more information about the AMCC.

Soon, there will be streaming video or audio of our speakers as they travel around the country – instead of my daughter singing “Puff the Magic Dragon!”
