Our region’s science pipeline is growing, thanks to the work of Kachemak Bay Research Reserve staff and their many partners.

Regional partnerships are thriving and collaborating to bring science, conservation, and climate resilience funding to our region, according to the Kachemak Bay Research Reserve’s December 2023 quarterly report. 

The Reserve was awarded nearly $400,000 in grant funding to support science focused on nearshore fisheries, invasive species, migratory birds, long-term monitoring data synthesis, knowledge sharing, and incorporating human dimensions into all programmatic work to protect Alaska’s coastal resources.

Together with many partners, the Reserve is supporting applications for more than $35 million in funding to support regional science, monitoring, climate adaptation initiatives, and conservation over the next several years.
