Alaska is America’s last frontier, a place of striking beauty and natural wonder where vast landscapes remain largely untouched by human hands. Alaska is home to 16 national wildlife refuges and 48 designated Wilderness areas. It’s here that you can find the two largest national forests in the entire country – the Tongass National Forest in southeast Alaska, and the Chugach National Forest in south-central Alaska. And America’s Arctic, located in northern Alaska entirely above the Arctic Circle, is home to three of our nation’s greatest wild treasures: the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, and America’s Arctic Ocean – the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas.
