(Alaska Wilderness League) We were thrilled on November 12, 2019, to honor a great conservation advocate, philanthropist and political operative, and a true Alaska conservation hero, Tom Campion, with our first ever Mardy Murie Lifetime Achievement Award.
Alaska Wilderness League had a busy week recently in Washington, D.C., defending the Tongass National Forest from the Trump administration’s efforts to remove Roadless Rule protections.
It’s time to shine a light on the Interior Department’s plans to destroy the Arctic Refuge. Help us make sure that President Trump and Interior Secretary Bernhardt hear our message: drilling will kill polar bears.
