Alaska is home to six native and two non-native species of amphibians and four species of marine turtles. Dr. Joshua Ream will discuss ecology and ongoing research, as well as cultural relationships that Alaska's native peoples have had with these species for many generations.
Dr. Joshua Ream is an anthropologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. While his professional work involves fish and wildlife species typically used for food, his personal interests and academic background include research on non-game species in Alaska, especially amphibians and reptiles. His doctoral research explored the cultural relationships with and local traditional knowledge of amphibians along Alaska's Stikine River, where he received his Tlingit name Xíxch'iToowóo - He Who Cares for the Frogs.
