Research Results and Resource Information
Research in Denali
More than 800 scientific and scholarly studies have taken place in the park since the early 1900’s. In 2009, there were 61 active Research and Collecting Permits for studies in Denali. Some researchers are conducting more than one study. These scientific studies are conducted by Denali staff, park cooperators (e.g., U.S. Geological Survey or Alaska State Department of Fish and Game), and investigators from universities, institutions, and other agencies. Appropriate research for Denali is that which gathers information while making minimal impacts to park resources and visitor experience.
