Alaska Wilderness League galvanizes support to secure vital policies that protect and defend America’s last great wild public lands and waters.
Alaska is a national and international treasure, with towering mountain peaks and glaciers, old growth forests, pristine tundra, rivers, wetlands and barrier islands. Nowhere else in America is there as diverse and abundant fish and wildlife, vast herds of free roaming caribou, unparalleled wild salmon runs, and millions of birds that nest in Alaska before traveling to every state and six of seven continents. 225 million acres of federal lands in Alaska - including national parks, national forests and national wildlife refuges - are owned by all Americans, and each of us has a stake in responsible stewardship.
Alaska Wilderness League stands with, serves and supports the many people and organizations that believe in a sustainable future for Alaska. We honor and respect the cultures of Alaska Natives whose way of life remains deeply connected to the state’s land, waters, and wildlife. We believe that Alaska’s long-term economic future and subsistence traditions are inexorably tied to the health and sound stewardship of its natural resources, which support hunting, fishing, tourism and unrivaled outdoor experiences that are central to Alaskans’ quality of life.
