Meet the 2014 Sealaska Interns

Sealaska knows that sustainable operations can provide benefits today and into the future. We are happy that we can set aside natural resources revenues to fund shareholder education and training opportunities.

Sealaska interns are mapping subsistence patterns, inspecting timber stands, advancing mariculture, working in communications, and developing language and culture programs.
