The Alaska Wildlife Alliance is a nonprofit organization founded by Alaskans in 1978. Solely dependent on the grassroots support of its members, it is the only Alaskan-based group dedicated entirely to the protection of Alaska's wildlife. The group promotes a science-based approach to wildlife management that promotes healthy ecosystems and includes true subsistence hunting. The Alaska Wildlife Alliance is committed to the protection of Alaska's wildlife for its intrinsic value and for the benefit of present and future generations.
A group of committed Juneau wildlife advocates has organized the first regional chapter of the AWA: the Alaska Wildlife Alliance-Southeast, or AWA-SE. Board members are working with a select group of dedicated members to create a sound foundation for its new chapter. They have already been participating in local events, writing letters to the editor and investigating important Southeast wildlife issues.
If the mission and approach suit you, get in on the ground floor by volunteering to serve on the Southeast board or to fill a key committee position. Become involved by planning events, developing member recruitment strategies, working with agencies that impact our wildlife, monitoring the prosecution of wildlife violation cases, educating the public on wildlife issues and concerns, developing media and publicity material, testifying on proposed game regulatory and legislative proposals and more.
