Save Bristol Bay The Bristol Bay region in southwest Alaska is pristine wild country stretching from the rugged snow-capped peaks of the Alaska Range, across tundra and wetlands laced with rivers that flow into the Bay, providing the best wild salmon habitat on Earth. The hour and a-half flight from Anchorage to Bristol Bay takes visitors on a breath-taking journey across two national parks (Katmai and Lake Clark), Alaska’s largest state park (Wood-Tikchick), three active volcanoes (Augustine, Iliamna and Redoubt), Lake Iliamna (Alaska’s largest lake) and countless winding rivers and tundra lakes. Bristol Bay and its watershed are truly inspiring for their beauty and bounty of fish and wildlife. The Pebble deposit is a massive storehouse of gold, copper and molybdemum, located in the headwaters of the Kvichak and Nushagak Rivers, two of the eight major rivers that feed Bristol Bay. If built, Pebble would be one of the largest mines of its type in the world.

Defenders of Wildlife – ANWR page The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is home to arctic foxes and caribou. It’s the most important onshore denning habitat for America’s vanishing polar bears. And, each year, millions of birds from all across the country make their way to this special place.
Tongass National Forest Conservation Society Tongass Conservation Society has maintained its vigilance in the southern Tongass for many years. The closure of the Ketchikan Pulp mill in 1997 eased the burden of industrial scale logging although timber sales are still regularly scheduled. Some logging operators demand roads be constructed in order to cut old growth trees. TCS has been fighting to have Alaska returned to its former roadless designation.
Sitka Wild Sitka Conservation Society (SCS) has been working to protect the temperate rainforest of southeast Alaska and Sitka’s quality of life since 1967. We are based in the small coastal town of Sitka, Alaska, located on the west coast of Baranof Island in the heart of the Tongass National Forest.
Biogems – Save the Tongass Stretching 500 miles along the southeast coast of Alaska, the Tongass National Forest lies at the heart of the world’s largest remaining temperate rainforest.

Dogwood Alliance Southern activists formed Dogwood Alliance in November 1996.In 1999, Dogwood Alliance celebrated its first major victory by leveraging the first ever, comprehensive study of Southern forest sustainability. Conducted by the US Forest Service, the Environmental Protection Agency and the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the study showed that the Southern United States produces more timber than any other country in the world and paper is the number one wood commodity produced in the region. It also confirmed that Southern forests are some of the most biologically diverse and endangered in North America.
