Alaska's wide range of habitats, from temperate coastal rainforest to Arctic tundra, host more globally significant Important Bird Areas than any other state in the U.S. There are also many species, such as Emperor Goose, Whiskered Auklet, and Red-faced Cormorant you won't see anywhere else in the country.
