The ADF&G, Division of Wildlife Conservation (DWC) is constitutionally mandated to manage game using sustained yield principles. Within that mandate our management attempts to address the public’s will, particularly as expressed through regulations and guidance from the Alaska Board of Game. To improve public understanding of game populations in the Haines area, in recent years the DWC has initiated research projects to inform management of goats, brown bears, and moose. Those projects were initiated at the request of the community and Upper Lynn Canal Fish and Game Advisory Committee and reflect a cooperative working relationship between DWC, wildlife user groups, and area residents. We are all fortunate to have a cadre of professional DWC biologists to conduct this work in an objective, transparent, and scientifically valid manner. Unfortunately, the integrity of two DWC biologists was recently questioned.
