Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

The Arctic Refuge is one of America’s most valuable wilderness areas. Unbroken ecosystems span boreal forest to Brooks Range peaks to the Arctic Ocean coast. Over 200 animal species make the refuge home. The coastal plain has vital caribou birthing grounds, polar bear dens, migratory bird nests and more.

Fifty years ago, the Arctic Refuge was set aside with a new premise – to preserve wilderness and wildlife on an ecosystem scale.  Today, stronger protections are needed for Coastal Plain lands vital to caribou, polar bear, birds and Gwich’in culture.
