Fish and Wildlife

The Department of Fish and Game maintains a nice website of wildlife information. Although not all of the species listed occur within the Copper River watershed, this is still a good source of information about species that do live here.

There is a lot of past and current work being done on animals and plants in the Copper River watershed; check out our Research Page!


The Prince William Sound Science Center in Cordova maintains an active shorebird research program on the Copper River Delta and Prince William Sound.

Every winter, residents of Gakona, Kenny Lake and Cordova take part in the Audubon Christmas Bird Count – check out their results here!
