Help Protect Alaska and the Arctic

Alaska is renowned for some of the most beautiful, wild scenery in the world. A land of epic wildlife migrations and vast undeveloped wilderness, Alaska truly is the nation’s last, great wild frontier.

The Wilderness Society needs your help in protecting Alaska’s magnificent wilderness. From the Tongass National Forest to the Arctic Ocean to the special places in between, these wildlands benefit from your involvement. Our work helps protect millions of acres of forests, tundra and mountains as well as the moose, bears, birds, salmon and other wildlife that depend on them.
