Alaska’s wild lands — including the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge — are under attack. This extraordinary treasure trove of lands, set aside decades ago to be protected now and in the future for the benefit of the American people, is in severe danger of being destroyed forever by short-sighted politicians and the extractive industries. They want only the resources these pristine areas can provide, regardless of the resulting devastation to the habitat, wildlife, and cultures.
Alaska Wilderness League is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation founded in 1993 to further the protection of Alaska’s amazing public lands. The League is the only Washington, D.C.-based environmental group devoted full-time to protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and other wilderness-quality lands in Alaska.
Alaska Wilderness League’s mission is to lead the effort to preserve Alaska’s wild lands and waters by engaging citizens and decisionmakers with a courageous, constant, victorious voice for Alaska.
Alaska Wilderness League works at the federal level on a variety of issues affecting Alaska’s wild land and waters. Currently, the League is fighting to permanently protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as wilderness, promote the sustainable future of the Tongass National Forest, and check the unbalanced and potentially destructive development of Alaska’s Arctic waters and Western Arctic public land.
The League, based in Washington, D.C., opened an Arctic Environmental Justice Center in Anchorage, AK in January 2007. The center provides a base of outreach and support for members of Arctic communities who are on the front lines of the destruction from industrial development
The Alaska Coalition
Founded in the 1970’s, the Alaska Coalition is a powerful network of conservation, sporting, labor and religious groups from all 50 states that work together to keep Alaska’s wild places protected for future generations. Alaska Wilderness League is a member of the Alaska Coalition and also helps facilitate and staff the Coalition to further support its continued success.
