National Parks Group Applauds Park Service’s Adoption of 2013 Wildlife Management Regulations

Statement by Jim Stratton, Alaska Region Senior Director, National Parks Conservation Association

“National parks lands are to be managed differently than other public land in Alaska - and that applies to certain hunting methods.  What the state wants to do on their land is their business, but we’re certainly pleased that the National Park Service (NPS) is preserving the integrity of park wildlife by making reprehensible hunting methods like baiting brown bears and shooting black bear cubs at their den sites illegal on park lands.”
