Alaska’s Diverse Lands, Waters, and Wildlife
At 365 million acres in land area, Alaska is roughly one-fifth the size of the 48 contiguous states. Alaska’s location and largely undeveloped landscapes provide large and productive areas of habitat for many species, including migratory birds. Thriving populations of large mammals, including caribou, brown bear, and mountain goat, along with five species of Pacific salmon, still exist in Alaska. These many wildlife species are increasingly pressured by issues like climate change and habitat fragmentation and loss. Fortunately, if we invest in the new Alaska Wildlife Action Plan today, we can conserve wildlife and vital natural areas for future generations.
A Powerful Coalition to Conserve our Wildlife Heritage
More than 380 organizations and businesses from across Alaska have come together to spread the word about the Alaska Wildlife Action Plan and to secure the funding it needs for success. YOU CAN HELP by joining the coalition, engaging organizations in your community and urging our elected officials to support the federal State Wildlife Grants Program and legislation providing long-term, dedicated funding for wildlife conservation and related education and recreation.
