Executive Order

President Obama issued an Executive Order to safeguard the Bering Sea and establish the Northern Bering Sea Climate Resilience Area. The Order is monumental to the Bering Strait and the Arctic, as the protection of the Bering Sea and its resources is essential to the survival of the people of the Arctic. The Tribes in Alaska were the first natural resource managers, the first participants in arctic commerce, and the first enviromenmentalists. For us, a healthy ecosystem is a matter of food security, and it also allows us to maintain our unique cultural identity and rich heritage. This Executive Order will protect the vital subsistence economies that have lasted for millennia.
