      Baby porcupine nurses then follows mother. 1:29 The baby porcupine, called a porcupette (female) or porcupet (male), will nurse for four months, an amazing amount of time by rodent standards. This huge investment of time by the mother accounts for the high survival rate of baby porcupines through their first summer and fall. Although this scene was shot during the day, most nursing takes place at night. While this video contains no audio, baby and mother porcupines may “sing” to each other in a responsive way during nursing.

        Baby porcupine learns to climb a tree. 2:57 Baby porcupines begin to climb trees once they are two weeks old. They start small and advance to increasingly larger trees. Porcupines use all four limbs and their tail in climbing. Their fore and back paws have long curved claws to catch hold of furrows and crevices in the tree bark. The muscles in their limbs propel the animal upward while the tail, with its stout bristles on the underside, presses against the tree trunk to prevent backsliding. Falling out of trees is a major cause of accidental death among porcupines.

          The goal of this 30 second PSA is to reach an Alaska state-wide audience of all ages to raise awareness of the harmful effects of marine debris to marine wildlife and humans. This project combines ADF&G's established "Loose the Loop" outreach campaign with NOAA's Marine Debris Program message "Marine Debris is Everyone's Problem." Two other versions are available, a lower resolution download friendly version, and an HD version with subtitles. Transcript: "It may seem unimaginable, but far too often our everyday household and worksite items wreak havoc as they become marine debris. Man-made synthetic materials improperly stowed or disposed of on boats, beaches, at work, and in our own homes find their way into the sea.Marine debris may be out of sight for most of us, but its global impacts are tragically apparent. After all, as Alaskans, we know, the ocean is our lifeblood. It's up to each of us to make the right choices. It will make a world of difference."

                A six-second video clip of a little brown bat on Douglas Island in Southeast Alaska. This bat was captured in a mist net at Fish Creek near Juneau, equipped wiht a tiny radio transmittter for tracking purposes and released unharmed. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has established a network of year-round acoustic monitoring station across Southeast Alaska to learn more about when bats emerge in spring, when they disappear in the fall, and to compare seasonal activity patterns across the region. In addition, ADF&G is trapping and radiotagging little brown bats to learn more about the timing of reproduction and migration, locations of maternity and day roosts, and where little brown bats go in winter.

                    Researchers with ADF&G on Kuiu Island in Southeast Alaska working with marten. Since the animals may have been in a trap for several hours, they are given a little jam before they are released as a caloric boost. Both Pacific and American marten - and hybrids - are found on Kuiu Island. For more on marten, see: http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=pacificmarten.main.
