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.
If you love this landscape and want to work to protect it, please:
When you donate $35 or more, you become a member of The Wilderness Society and join our network of supporters dedicated to protecting Alaska and the Arctic and other wild places.
Even a small donation can help us continue our work to protect Alaska and the Arctic.
Join our growing online community of people working to protect our cherished wildlands.
Many issues that affect one wildland also affect other wild places across the country. Learn about current issues and lend your voice to important causes.
Wilderness is a precious resource with many human, natural and economic benefits that we need to protect.

The next fiscal year starts on Oct. 1, meaning that Congress is running out of time to cobble together "must-pass" appropriations legislation that will pay for the day-to-day expenses of the federal government.
But in what has become a sad annual commentary on some leaders' dereliction of America's conservation tradition, the process is gummed up with counterproductive “riders” that have no place in the appropriations process, and would hurt wildlands right when they sorely need our help.
