We are EAGER to support the Alaskan economy with our tourism dollars. However, the reputation of the State of Alaska in terms of its commitment to sustainable wildlife management and to its reputation as a wildlife tourism destination was damaged when the Alaska Board of Game rejected a petition from a coalition of wildlife organizations urging it to enact a wolf buffer (no-trapping) zone on a small parcel of land along the eastern boundary of Denali National Park. Significant economic advantages to Alaska’s tourism economy can be derived from the proposed buffer zone. We urge the State to reconsider and reverse this decision.
