Our Impact

Famed for its immense wilderness and abundant wildlife, Alaska is home to the United States’ only Arctic region, the largest national forest in the nation — the Tongass — and a rich native culture that dates back millennia.

Earthjustice, in coordination with our clients and allies, defends the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Arctic Ocean, and Western Arctic from fossil fuel development, as well as opposes industry efforts to log and build roads in Alaska’s old-growth forests and wilderness.

We are committed to representing those who oppose unlawful and ill-advised mining in the vast expanse of Alaska and British Columbia. Our Alaska-based attorneys wield extensive expertise in this arena, both on a national scale and in our Juneau office, which has battled some of the region’s worst hard rock and coal mine proposals.

See a few of the cases of the Alaska regional office, and learn about the green features of our Juneau location.

Highlights of past successes include:

  • Defeating a State of Alaska challenge to the Roadless Rule nationwide;
  • Enjoining countless old-growth Tongass timber sales in lawsuits over a span of nearly 30 years;
  • Protecting the Arctic from development’s harm, including the Western Arctic’s most sensitive wildlife habitat near Teshekpuk Lake, thus opening the door to permanent protection of the area;
  • Winning protections for Alaska’s ocean ecosystems and marine animals, including Steller sea lions;
  • Forcing substantial reform of gold placer mining practices throughout Interior Alaska through a successful litigation campaign; and
  • Defeating a proposed permit to dump mine tailings from the Quartz Hill Molybdenum Mine into the waters of Misty Fjords National Monument.
