            The marmots of the Barren Islands may be no more. Hunters and trappers hired by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service were on Sud Island in the Barrens this year trying to do away with the introduced species. There were similar efforts on an island east of Akutan and another west of Adak trying to do away with other invasive critters.

            Steve Delahanty is the manager of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge in Homer.

            Museum, the Kodiak Area Native Association and the Sun'aq Tribe of Kodiak each received money for projects during a recent round of federal funding.

            The grants were announced last week by Alaska's congressional delegation and are among three pages of grant awards that ranged from energy efficiency projects to airport improvements.

            The Alutiiq Museum received just over $49,000 to create an electronic catalog of its entire Karluk One collection.

            KANA received a U.S. Department of Commerce grant for implementing a comprehensive economic development strategy.

            And the Sun'aq Tribe was awarded nearly $340,000 Tribal Government grant.

            Our listeners in the St. Paul area will also see some benefits from this large federal grant awards cycle. The Aleut Community of St. Paul Island was awarded nearly $160,000 for a Steller sea lion bio-sampling program.

            The Aleut Community received an additional three grants which were awarded specifically to Alaska Native tribal government and communities.

            The three grants include: $344,000 to prevent and reduce alcohol and substance-abuse crimes; $425,000 to the Tribal Resource Grant Program; and $537,000 to the Tribal Governments Program.

This week the U.S. government declared the well that spilled around 5 million barrels of oil in the Gulf of Mexico officially dead. It's been called the worst accidental offshore spill in history and caused when BP's Deepwater Horizon exploded April 20, killing 11 workers.

Three Coast Guard public affairs officers from the base in Kodiak spent time as the Coast Guard pulled in resources and personnel from all over to mitigate the disaster. One of those was Petty Officer Sara Francis who described the size of the response.
