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.

Our Mission

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.
