Alaska Wilderness League member Drew McCalley considers the question of how to prepare for a backpack trip to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Recently Andy Moderow, the League’s Alaska Director, was invited by Alaska Public Media to come on and discuss the future of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Fossil fuel development in the Coastal Plain would devastate an Arctic nursery of global significance. It would violate human rights, jeopardize food security, and threaten the health and safety of Indigenous communities. It would contribute to the escalating crises of climate change and biological annihilation.
Alaska Wilderness League recently co-hosted an event for the Anchorage adventure community in conjunction with some amazing partners: the American Packrafting Association, Alpacka Raft and Alaska Conservation Foundation.
