What is the Alaska Coalition: The Alaska Coalition, a project of Alaska Wilderness League, is a partnership of nearly 1,000 groups from the conservation, sporting, labor, religious and business communities that has, for more than 30 years, worked together to safeguard Alaska’s public lands and waters – from the verdant tundra of the Arctic to the lush temperate rainforest of southeast Alaska.
Ultimately, we hope to add the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to our nation’s wilderness preservation system; to conserve and restore key areas in the Tongass National Forest; to protect special places in the National Petroleum Reserve–Alaska; and to keep the sensitive waters of the Arctic Ocean safe from oil and gas development.
Mission: We are businesses and organizations working together to assure lasting protection for Alaska’s national public lands and waters. By speaking with a united voice, we demonstrate that Americans from all walks of life are dedicated to keeping Alaska wild.
Current Activity: Together are voices are stronger. Join us in calling on President Obama to grant the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge the strongest protection possible. Sign your orgnization or business onto our letter. DEADLINE TO SIGN: OCTOBER 7.
