Clean Air and Water

Fighting for healthy communities, fisheries, subsistence resources

Alaskans rely on clean water and air for our work and lives. Two of the state’s economic drivers — fishing and tourism — depend on it. Alaskans count on clean air and water when they hunt, fish and gather food. The threat of toxic, dirty water and air on the health of our fish, wildlife and people is huge. Mega-mining projects threaten Alaska’s water and air. Large-scale industry emits toxic dust and churns out dirty wastewater laden with pollution. Trustees for Alaska provides free legal services that help preserve and protect clean water and air.
  • Trustees works to protect the pristine salmon habitat and the world’s largest wild sockeye fishery from the proposed Pebble mine.
  • Trustees fights legislation that would make it easier for projects to pollute.
  • Trustees defends the right of Alaskans to have a say over what industry does in their communities..
