These field reports provide timely updates and perspectives on issues of interest to our members and supporters in Alaska.

In the Winter 2017-2018 Alaska Regional Office Field Report we highlight:

  • Our newest staffer, Erica Carroll, who joined our team in late October.
  • Your chance to comment on a proposal to build the private Ambler Mining Road through 20 miles of Gates of the Arctic National Preserve.
  • Reemergence of threats to bears and wolves in Alaska’s national preserves.
  • The Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to reconsider mining proposals in Bristol Bay, threatening national parks and the region’s ecosystem.
