Unalaska students Cade Terada and Carter Price are working towards protecting the Alaskan environment for future generations.

The two juniors are members of the Arctic Youth Ambassadors program, which brings together high schoolers from around the state to discuss and learn about environmental issues.

Arctic Youth Ambassadors is a program run by the U.S. State Department, the federal Fish and Wildlife Service, and Alaska Geographic, a non-profit that partners with the state's parks, refuges and forests.
