Alaska Wilderness League

Alaska is a national and international treasure, with towering mountain peaks and glaciers, old growth forests, pristine tundra, rivers, wetlands, and barrier islands.  Nowhere else under our flag is there as diverse and abundant fish and wildlife, vast herds of free roaming caribou, unparalleled wild salmon runs and millions of birds that nest in Alaska before traveling to every state and six of seven continents. 225 million acres of federal lands in Alaska – including National Parks, National Forests and National Wildlife Refuges – are owned by all Americans, each with a stake in responsible stewardship.

Alaska Wilderness League stands with, serves, and supports the many people and organizations that believe in a sustainable future for Alaska. We honor and respect the cultures of Alaska Natives whose way of life remains deeply connected to the state’s land, waters, and wildlife.  We believe that Alaska’s long-term economic future and subsistence traditions are inexorably tied to the health and sound stewardship of its natural resources, which support hunting, fishing, tourism, and unrivaled outdoor experiences that are central to Alaskans’ quality of life.

Our Vision

Alaska’s wildest places are protected for generations to come.

Our Mission

Alaska Wilderness League galvanizes support to secure vital policies that protect and defend America’s last great wild public lands and waters.

Our Approach

  • We are tenacious and effective full-time advocates in the Halls of Congress and the corridors of federal agencies and beyond;
  • We galvanize support and amplify voices in protecting Alaska’s irreplaceable public lands and waters by engaging in deep collaboration with key partners, building strong and diverse coalitions, and engaging advocates across the country in these critical fights;
  • We devise innovative strategies with our allies to advance, defend, and implement federal policy solutions;
  • We build bridges between Alaskans and decision-makers to impact policies;
  • We listen to, support, and work side by side with our Gwich’in allies and Native partners.
