We explore Alaska, we gather food in Alaska, and we advocate for the traditions and cultures that are sustained by public lands and waters in the state.
Alaska Wilderness League’s strong presence in Alaska bridges the gap between the people who live in the state and the policy decisions often made in Washington DC. Staff in our Anchorage and Juneau offices – supplemented by frequent travels to Alaska’s Arctic – engage Alaskans in the critical decisions that will affect them personally, through a robust Environmental Justice program that connects with the people who are most reliant on our public lands and waters.
Across Alaska’s Arctic, we seek long lasting protections for land, air, and water that can sustain the region’s wildlife and subsistence way of life. In the Chugach National Forest, we seek protections that provide for the continued enjoyment of one of Alaska’s most accessible wild places, while also sustaining the economy and cultures in the region. And in the Tongass National Forest, we support protections for the best wild salmon and wildlife habitat and sustainable economic opportunities, while seeking an end to the destructive, industrial scale old-growth logging that threatens the ecological integrity of the region and opportunities for its people.
