For years the number of beluga whales in Cook Inlet has been on the decline. In 2008 they were put on the endangered species list. Recent research by a University of Alaska Fairbanks grad student has turned up a shift in diet in the Cook Inlet belugas that may help explain part of the decline.

Dinosaur bones have been found in Denali National Park. The bone fragments were discovered this summer by a team of University of Alaska Fairbanks and National Park Service scientists. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the researchers found the bones on a mountain slope in the Cantwell rock formation, north of the Park Road.
