America’s last wild frontier
Visit Alaska and you’ll see why this state is often referred to as America’s Last Frontier. Massive tracts of wild open spaces, ancient forests, soaring mountains and salmon-filled rivers create exceptionally rugged, untamed beauty.
Alaska’s unspoiled wildlands provide some of the best wildlife habitat in the country for animals such as eagles, salmon, caribou and grizzly bears. They also provide sustenance for Alaska Natives who have lived off the land for thousands of years.
While Alaska is home to some of largest tracts of wildlands in the world, it’s also the site of some of the most threatened. Dual pressures of climate change and resource development (oil and gas, mining and logging) have placed many of Alaska’s wildlands at a pivotal moment in history. Will these magnificent places survive? Only we have the power to ensure they do.
Let decision makers know you want Alaska’s most vulnerable wildlands preserved for future generations. Sign up for our WildAlerts or texts for opportunities to take action.
