Other Alaska Lands and Waters

From the windswept Aleutians and and the wetlands of Western Alaska to the expansive forests and mountain ranges of Interior Alaska, the Sierra Club works to protect Alaska's wildlands.

The salmon fisheries in Western Alaska's Bristol Bay are threatened not only by proposed oil exploration and drilling, but also by what may be one of the world's largest gold mines, near Lake Illiamna.

In the interior, Denali National Park and Preserve is proposeing to increase the number of flights allowed into the park.  In the Copper River area, home not only to huge salmon runs, but one of the largest staging areas for shorebird migration in the world, the BLM is in the process of rewriting their management plan.
