The Sportsman’s Alliance for Alaska is setup to protect Alaska and it’s conservation efforts. These conservation efforts include the Bristol Bay region, Tongass National Forest and Teshekpuk Lake.
One of the most notable conservation efforts going on today is located in the Bristol Bay region of Alaska. Over the past 10 years, the Bristol Bay area has been targeted for a massive mining proposal. A Canadian mining company (Northern Dynasty Minerals) acquired 100% ownership in the mining rights to the area in 2005. Northern Dynasty Minerals want to develop the worlds largest open pit mine known as the Pebble mine.
The effects of the Pebble Mine are said to destroy a $1.5 Billion annual commercial salmon fishing industry due to the mine’s location upriver.
As this is just one of the many conservation efforts that the Alaska Conservation Foundation has in place to protect Alaska, your cruise with Custom Alaska Cruises will great help conservation in Alaska.
