Trustees for Alaska is a public interest law firm whose mission is to provide legal counsel to sustain and protect Alaska's natural environment. We represent local and national environmental groups, Alaska Native villages and nonprofit organizations, community groups, hunters, fishers and others where the outcome of our advocacy could benefit Alaska's environment.
A volunteer Board of Directors consisting of scientists, lawyers, and representatives of local communities, fishing and Alaska Native organizations, and conservation groups governs Trustees for Alaska. The Board provides overall policy direction and expert advice, approves the annual budget and work plan, and approves all litigation. Trustees for Alaska was incorporated December 16, 1974 pursuant to the provisions of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3).
