Download as PDF 2244 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 10 / Friday, January 15, 2016 / Notices information on how to access and participate in the webinar will be posted on the Commission’s Web site (www.mmc.gov) at least one week in advance of the meeting. These meetings are designed to further implementation of the Commission’s Strategic Plan, which recognizes that the Arctic warrants special attention because its marine mammals, ecosystems, and marine mammal dependent coastal communities are being impacted profoundly by climate change. The Commission’s focus on Alaska and the Arctic includes current work to promote effective consultation procedures between Alaska Native Tribes and federal agencies, efforts to improve understanding of the cumulative impacts of climate change and human activities on Arctic marine mammals, and engagement in domestic and international science and management programs for polar bears, walrus, ice seals, and beluga and bowhead whales. A proposed agenda for the Anchorage meeting is posted on the Commission’s Web site at www.mmc.gov, and may be subject to change based on the information provided by participants during the Barrow, Kotzebue, and Nome meetings. Additional information about the Marine Mammal Commission, the Alaska meetings, and documents related to the Commission’s consultations with Native communities can be found at www.mmc.gov.
