Abstract:

In Alaska, a key regulatory conflict exists between the needs of the traditional Inupiat Eskimo economy based on subsistence hunting and the management regimes of government agencies responsible for conservation of the hunted species. This has often led to serious tension between Eskimo and Regulator, and to ineffective management of the wildlife resource. This book addresses this important issue and provides a well-detailed and fascinating case study of how such a mismatch of goals and objectives can be constructively reconciled. The book opens with a discussion of the issues posed by 'what is effective wildlife management?', which stimulates a broad presentation of the legal evolution of wildlife and game laws in England and the United States. Then follows a chapter describing the way of life and subsistence economy of the Inupiat people of Alaska, stressing the key importance of hunting to their livelihood and culture. The framework of federal, state and local wildlife regulations and their administration are described and their shortcomings and problems highlighted. Recent co-operative management schemes for marine and terrestrial species are evaluated and it is concluded that only by such integrated schemes can effective wildlife management be achieved.
