From the grandeur of Denali National Park, to world-renowned salmon rivers, to the giant bears of the Kodiak Archipelago, Alaska is a land of unparalleled wildlife resources.
More than twice the size of Texas, this great land encompasses diverse landscapes: rugged mountains, expansive river valleys, pristine lakes, lush coastal wetlands, and massive glaciers. The state remains an icon of natural splendor with abundant populations of fish and wildlife.
But the classic images of teeming wildlife mask some of the unique vulnerabilities these species face. High densities of wildlife gather seasonally in pristine areas, but loss or degradation of this limited habitat can impact populations worldwide.
ALC works to conserve the "best of the best" of these areas, prioritizing imminently threatened habitat most crucial to wild salmon, bears, birds, and other wildlife.
