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.
