Coastal resiliency is the ability of our local nearshore ecosystems to cope with change and maintain its essential function, identity and structure.
The Hoonah Indian Association Coastal Resilience Program investigates how oceanic change will impact traditional indigenous coastal resources and subsistence foods. We are recording baseline oceanographic data in order to 1) understand the current state of our coasts & resources, 2) understand their vulnerability to change and increase resilience, and 3) strengthen the role of Tribes and indigenous peoples in marine and coastal science, and ocean and coastal management.
