Alaska’s big wild life
We measure Alaska with superlatives—the tallest mountains, the wildest parks, the biggest salmon and bear, the largest herds of caribou.
The wild pervades Alaska’s forests, coastline, waterways and public lands. It defines Alaska’s wildlife, from Tundra insects and salmon fry to puffins, whales and brown bears.
Right now, Alaska’s lands, waters, wildlife and communities face significant threats. Already, Congress has removed safeguards that keep our water and air clean by repealing protections like the Stream Protection Rule.
Politicians have targeted other protections that maintain wildlife diversity, reduce carbon emissions, and prevent pollution.
We have one time to get it right
Trustees for Alaska believes we have one chance to get it right in Alaska – and endless opportunities to get it wrong.
For decades, Trustees for Alaska has been the legal backbone of environmental advocacy in Alaska. We are a homegrown Alaska law firm with over four decades of experience.
Our legal work addresses oil and gas development, mining, toxic waste, public land use, predator control, marine resources, and the preservation of pristine places like the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Our successes have set significant legal precedent in in state and federal law.
