The Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission is committed to protecting the bowhead whale and its habitat. We are also committed to ensuring a clean ocean for the other marine mammals that are critical to our subsistence lifestyle and survival. For thousands of years, our subsistence harvest has been closely woven with ocean stewardship. 

Today, with the retreat of arctic sea ice and the worlds population growing reliant on plastics, the AEWC has embarked on a CLEAN OCEANS CAMPAIGN, which deepens our commitment as ocean stewards. Our pledge is to reduce the amount of plastics we use and waste we generate. We encourage you to join us.
