The Bristol Bay Times published an article titled, “Unalaska donates funds for saving plants, animals and state ferry system”. The article reads in part as follows:
The Unalaska City Council last week donated money towards welcoming scientists to Unalaska, and to help reform the state ferry system.
The council donated $3,000 for the Sept. 5-7 meeting of the Arctic Council’s working group on the conservation of Arctic plants and animals, at the Grand Aleutian Hotel.
“The working group will be hosting an estimated 45 scientists from all over the Arctic region at this meeting. This working group will serve as a vehicle for cooperation on species and habitat management, and utilization, to share information management techniques and regulatory regimes,” according to Mayor Frank Kelty, adding the event provides an opportunity to “showcase this beautiful island, and show this community’s great hospitality.”
