The Shared Beringian Heritage Program funds outstanding scientific and cultural projects of tremendous variety. Recent projects have included work on marine mammals, sea ice patterns, reindeer herding, archaeology, and documentation of local traditions, language, and culture. Increasingly with the rapid changes occurring in the region, projects are related to climate change and other broad-scale issues affecting the region. This includes research to gather critical species and habitat information, documentation of traditional ecological knowledge (TEK), and establishment of citizen-based science in the U.S. and Russia.
