How We Work
Cook Inletkeeper is a community-based organization using a unique blend of advocacy, science and outreach in its mission to protect Alaska’s Cook Inlet watershed and the life it sustains. Inletkeeper’s advocacy work directly confronts oil and gas corporations’ role in toxic pollution and climate change. Inletkeeper’s decades-long stream temperature data collection effort highlights the intersection between climate change and wild salmon, ultimately informing land and water management decisions. Together, this work creates a strong foundation to press for meaningful long-term policy and regulatory change.
Inletkeeper amplifies and implements its advocacy and science through a combination of community organizing and strategic communications. Inletkeeper engages with local communities and a strong coalition of groups in Alaska working to build a bridge to the future by protecting wild salmon landscapes and addressing the climate crisis. Inletkeeper’s organizing work includes building support for sustainable and equitable economies and local climate solutions; and participating in a team of data-driven community organizers who continue to build and activate a base of supporters who will stand up for their ways of life. In all this work, Inletkeeper creates targeted communications to amplify threats and opportunities to make positive change. Together, these organizing and communications strategies connect Inletkeeper with tens of thousands of Alaskans each year, engaging them in long-term relationships designed to build power to ensure a resilient Cook Inlet watershed for generations to come.
