Millions of birds flock to Alaska each spring from around the globe, making this a crucial place for birds worldwide. From the icy, bountiful waters of the Arctic Ocean to the misty, salmon-rich rainforests of the Tongass National Forest, Audubon Alaska works to conserve Alaska's spectacular birds and other wildlife—and their habitats— to ensure their place for future generations. We employ science and state-of-the-art mapping technology to drive our conservation priorities, with an emphasis on public lands and waters.
