The mission of the Alaska Conservation Foundation is to protect Alaska’s natural environment and the diverse cultures and ways of life it sustains. As the largest grantmaker of Alaska conservation, the foundation supports hundreds of projects across the state. Priorities include Alaska’s most fragile natural resources, such as the Arctic region, Bristol Bay, Tongass National Forest and offshore waters. The organization also works to prevent Alaska from becoming the next frontier for coal development given that the state contains up to one-eighth of the world’s total coal resources.
In addition to grant funding, the foundation works to support and advance the conservation movement. Training and internship programs build new generations of leaders. Convenings and workshops bring together stakeholders to develop coordinated conservation strategies. Particular effort is made to ensure that diverse voices and viewpoints are represented, including Alaskan native communities, fisherman, hunters and local businessmen.
Our work with the Alaska Conservation Foundation ranges from coordinating efforts to protect the salmon watersheds of Bristol Bay to the protection of critical habitat in the Tongass National Forest.
Thank you for sharing.
