Native Communities & Tribes


Native Communities & Tribes

ABR has its roots in Alaska and in working with Alaska Native communities to address local conservation issues. We have worked as sub-contractors to Native corporations and assisted the Alaska Native Health Tribal Consortium in conducting feasibility studies for hydroelectric power. We have provided services including wetland determinations and mapping for development projects and scientific services in support of permitting for oil and gas exploration on and near tribal lands. Some of our experience working with Native organizations in Alaska and the Lower 48 includes:

  • subsistence resource studies in and around the village of Nuiqsut for the North Slope Borough
  • Chukchi Sea Environmental Studies Program and Shell Onshore Environmental Studies Program, operated by Olgoonik Fairweather, a subsidiary of the Olgoonik Corporation of Wainwright
  • fish surveys for a feasibility study of hydroelectric power at Scammon Bay for the Alaska Native Health Tribal Consortium
  • wetlands mapping and bird movement studies for the Alaska Village Electric Cooperative
  • radar inventory of marbled murrelets on timber stands for the Hoopa Tribe in northern California
  • riparian mapping of the Grand Ronde watershed for the Columbia River Intertribal Fish Commission
