Luke A'Bear

Luke A’Bear, Conservation and Management Resident, somehow landed in Alaska in much the same way many have found themselves here, by following someone else. Stemming from a forgotten corner of olde England it has been quite the experience for him moving to the Southeast. Nowhere back home compares to the remote and pristine environments found here. Almost every corner of England has been plowed, mined or built upon so to live in a place where the footprints of man are scarce is a joy. Over the last few years he has somehow obtained an undergraduate degree in environmental science and a master’s degree in conservation. Now he is relishing the opportunity to live his dream of employment in this field and put his knowledge into practice. Luke’s current work involves the analysis of timber sales and how these could be employed to better promote the long-term viability of Southeast Alaska’s economy and wildlife.
