From the tourist industry to hunters, small businesses and conservation nonprofits, we are building coalitions that support wildlife across the state.
We know we are stronger together, and that’s why we stand with other conservation and wildlife organizations with a shared vision, be it on a single topic or bigger program goals. At AWA, we know partnerships are the key to success, and if you are a conservation or wildlife organization, we’d like to hear from you. Together, we have the power to make change.

TOURISM INDUSTRY: A COALITION FOR WILDLIFE
Show Me the Wildlife!
Did you know that from May 2017-April 2018, over 2.2 million people visited Alaska, the most visitors in the past 10 years, or that in 2011 Alaska’s wildlife viewing industry supported over $2.7 billion in economic activity? The tourism industry has the potential to reach millions of people each year and is an amazing opportunity to help garner support for Alaska’s wildlife. Do you represent a tourism group and want to learn more about joining a Conservation Coalition? Contact us through the form above, we’d love to talk to you.
True or False? The Alaska Wildlife Alliance is an anti-hunting organization.
False. Many people think that we are against hunting because we are a wildlife conservation organization. However, the Alaska Wildlife Alliance supports ethical hunting and fair chase concepts— we even have hunters on our Board of Directors. We do not support the Alaska Board of Game management decisions that promote unethical hunting methods and do not allow for fair chase. These practices jeopardize future hunting opportunities by degrading wildlife populations and ecosystems. Are you part of a hunting organization or group that shares these values and wants to work to preserve functional ecosystems so future generations of ethical hunters can share in this tradition? If so, we’d love to hear from you.
Here are a few examples of what we’ve done with our partners:
