Saving Alaska from itself

Document Actions

When will it end ("Trouble in the valley of the eagles," HCN, 5/27/13)? Always more mines, more development, more human impact, less habitat. For every new mine, and new gas or oil well, how about a new protected reserve to mitigate all the "take," so we humans do not impact every place? Alaska is called the Last Frontier, and it still remains uniquely pristine. It has not been ruined like the Lower 48. How long will it take Alaskans to rid this wilderness of the salmon, and its wildness?
