Down the Haul Road: Reminds one of the old adage 'You can run but you can't hide'

Email

As a fledgling biologist back in the early 1980s, I helped with the Section 1002 baseline studies on Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and later flew surveys for migrating whales out of Barrow and Deadhorse. These studies aimed to assess the impacts of oil and gas development, both onshore and offshore, on wildlife. I always got to my duty station by air, even though I was vaguely aware that a road had been built a decade earlier to the North Slope.
