Scientists from the Alaska and Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Centers will join together in cross-regional research, cultural engagement, and synthesis.
This work will provide forums for scientists, managers, and students to explore the steep watershed ecosystems in these areas and exchange knowledge to support climate adaptation.
At the 2022 Ocean Science Meeting, the first cohort of Pacific Islands-Alaska Collaboration (PI-AK) researchers and project partners from Southeast AK and Hawaiʻi highlighted their scientific findings of changing climate dynamics with resulting or projected impacts on watershed processes, fish habitat, nearshore ecosystem dynamics and health, and coral reef productivity. Presenters also spoke towards efforts to build student research and exchange opportunities, facilitate co-production, and address the link between their research and actionable science that can apply to both the Pacific Islands and Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CASCs).

Hawai'i Conservation ConferenceAia i hiʻikua, i hiʻialo – Reflecting on our Past; Dreaming on our Future
The Hawaiʻi Conservation Conference allows a diverse group of scientists, policymakers, conservation practitioners, educators, students and community members from Hawaiʻi and the Pacific to converge and discuss conservation. It’s a time to connect, share and inspire, all with the common goal of caring for our natural resources.
