The Teshekpuk Lake wetlands are home to hundreds of thousands of shorebirds, nesting loons, and vulnerable molting geese. And, the Colville River Special Area provides important nesting habitat to Rough-legged Hawks, Arctic Peregrine Falcons, Golden Eagles, and Gyrfalcons. For 40 years, these areas in Alaska's western Arctic have been protected. But now, the Bureau of Land Management is rewriting the land management plan, seeking to overturn protections for these irreplaceable wetlands and making them available for sale to the oil industry.

Rock, Paper, Fish: Film Screening Event (in Seattle)

The film takes audiences deep into the rainforest of Southeast Alaska where life is inseparable from the age-old rhythms of the Chilkat River. Due to the threat of industrial mining, local Alaskans are struggling to weigh the short-term economic beneifts against the long-term impacts to the Chilkat Watershed. Event will be held January 30, 2020 at 7:30 PM at Patagonia Ballard, in Seattle, WA. Register today!
