Interesting, he says that the surival of the polar bear species is dependent on sea ice. ] I have accepted the science presented to me by the Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.

Trump Administration Advances Arctic Drilling Project in Polar Bear Habitat

Walrus meat is often consumed, and the ivory is used to manufacture traditional arts and crafts. We require approval of the monitoring results for continued operation under the LOA.oil and gas exploration and development, and marine and coastal development activities.

We have expanded our analysis in the final rule to include more detail on potential effects due to the pressing issue of climate change and the indirect effects on polar bears and walrus, such as the potential effects of Industry activities on prey species. Modeling polar bear den site selection on Wrangel Island.

Trump admin seeks to allow polar bear disturbance for oil in Alaska refuge

[[Page 43949]] By conducting FLIR surveys prior to activities to discern polar bear dens along with verification of these dens by scent-trained dogs, disturbance of even unknown denning females is limited. Aircraft Traffic Routine aircraft traffic should have little to no effect on polar bears; however, extensive or repeated overflights of fixed-wing aircraft or helicopters could disturb polar bears. The geographic distribution of land denning also appears to have shifted westerly in recent years.

Oil and gas development affects polar bears in a variety of ways by polluting the ocean with hydrocarbons, reducing and disturbing their habitat with associated infrastructure and increased maritime traffic. 5 Comment: One commenter recommended that the Service, the applicant, and other available agencies and organizations should develop a broad-based population monitoring and impact assessment program to ensure that these activities, in combination with other risk factors, are not 1 individually or cumulatively having any population-level effects on polar bear and walrus populations, and 2 adversely affecting the availability of these marine mammals for subsistence uses by Alaska natives.

Indeed, two of three bears died in the Canadian experiment, and it was suspected that the ingestion of oil was a contributing factor to the deaths. In that position, he managed a large-scale salmon research program in Southwest Alaska, studied salmon habitat and ecology, and advised a commercial fishery on the population dynamics and run timing of Bristol Bay sockeye salmon.

The Ninth Circuit said that the district court had improperly required that FWS identify specific elements within the designated critical habitat areas that were essential to polar bear conservation and currently in use by polar bears. While these skin lesions have only rarely been found on oiled seals, the effects on walrus may be greater because of a lack of hair to protect the skin.

In summary, we have considered whether the proposed designation would result in a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Industry activity locations will change during the 5-year regulatory period and community concerns regarding the effect on subsistence uses by Industry may arise due to these potential changes in activity location.
