The Arctic Audubon Society, a chapter of the National Audubon Society, was chartered in 1977.
Arctic Audubon has worked to protect Alaskan ecosystems by encouraging
research, education, and management. We have consistently kept up-to-date
on the conservation issues that face Alaska. Currently, we are most
concerned with the Tanana Valley State Forest Management Plan, proposed
oil and gas development in the Minto Flats southwest of Fairbanks, protection
of critical habitat areas in the NPR-A, and responsible conservation
of Alaska's wildlife refuges.
