Yukon River attracting tribal conservation efforts and scientific interest

The Yukon River is considered relatively unspoiled. It runs about 2,500 miles from its headwaters in Canada to the Bering Sea on Alaska’s west coast. Scientists consider it a haven for research because no major dams or levees obstruct its flow. And tribal leaders and researchers are taking steps to insure the Yukon River remains pristine.
