Every day, Alaska Wilderness League defends public lands and waters in Alaska from attacks like these:
*While the Trump administration champions seismic testing, Congress just passed a controversial tax bill that allows drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, sacred lands of the Gwich’in people and vital habitat for caribou, denning polar bears and millions of migratory birds.
*The Trump administration is pushing ahead with plans to allow drilling in the Arctic Ocean, attempting to undo protections for 125 million acres of Arctic waters by re-doing the current and just-completed 5-year plan for offshore leasing.
*Development in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska has begun and the most recent lease sale offered by the Bureau of Land Management was the largest in Reserve history, including opening sensitive wildlife habitat surrounding Teshekpuk Lake.
*The Tongass National Forest, America’s largest, is under threat by new congressional attempts to clear-cut rare and valuable old-growth trees by, among other things, exempting nearly 10 million acres of Tongass land from the federal Roadless Rule.
