Founded by Alaskans in 1978, we give voice to Alaska’s wildlife, promoting an ecosystem approach to management from the ground up.
We are committed to the protection of Alaska’s natural wildlife for its intrinsic value, as well as for the benefit of present and future generations. We advocate for healthy ecosystems which are ethically and scientifically managed. We promote:
Sustainable populations of all wildlife species in Alaska, including wolves, bears, moose and caribou.
Balanced wildlife management, based on sound science and strong ethical/fair chase standards.
Expansion of sustainable and diverse wildlife viewing opportunities.
Protection and recovery of Alaska’s endangered species, such as Steller sea lions (western distinct population segment) and Cook Inlet beluga whales.
Healthy coexistence between wildlife and humans in urban and rural communities.
Preservation of important wildlife habitat throughout Alaska.
Educational programs with a focus on preserving Alaska’s wildlife and wild places.
