Nannies lead their kids up gnarly slopes, seeking places that predators fear to tread. While the precarious perches help goats avoid being eaten, there is an obvious downside to these sanctuaries: avalanches.

While scientists have long suspected that this life on the edge was risky, they have not really understood the extent to which avalanches affect mountain goats, and whether they instinctively shun, or can learn to avoid, avalanche-prone conditions.

With such a vast and varied environment, obtaining long-term oceanographic data is challenging, limiting understanding of patterns and the ability to predict long-term change in habitat and distribution of vital Alaskan fish populations.
