Sitka Conservation Society

Though the name may imply that the Society is focused on Sitka, the scope is fully regional and focused on protecting the entire Tongass. With  Wilderness as the central organizing theme, SCS holds the hardest line in Southeast conservation. SCK seeks to protect every untouched roadless area, coastline, and the associated biota from roads, timber sales, and types of visitation that compromise Wilderness character. SCK seeks to encourage a new regional economy that leaves industrial destruction to the past, and is based on 1) commercial fishing, 2) subsistence hunting, fishing and gathering, 3) recreation, and 4) visitation services -- all of which must occur at sustainable levels.
