          A representative from Greenpeace is on Kodiak Island to discuss his new initiative. George Pletnikoff, who grew up in the Pribilof Islands, is the Alaska Oceans Campaigner for Greenpeace USA. He's speaking with tribal leaders in Kodiak today, and will fly down to Old Harbor for meetings there over the weekend.
