The state of Alaska is amazing in many ways and I am proud to call it home. Sadly, the wildlife and ecosystem management policies currently in effect are akin to that of the US back in the times when the "wild west" was tamed by the Easterners...
Many up here hoped that the most recent election would result in change in the direction the State, and the Alaska Outdoor Council dominated Board of Game, have been bent on pursuing. It does appear that little will change, however.
Many people throughout Alaska, the lower 48, and the world, have been working hard to let the current administration know that wildlife does indeed have more value than just as an elective food choice or an ornamental bragging post on someone's wall.
The following links are for sites that are trying to make a difference in the management of Alaskan wildlife, not just to be managed for consumptive uses, but also for the average, and the majority of Alaskans who are non-consumptive users. Please check out these links and petitions and think about what is being said.
