Alaska Conservation Alliance
Alaska Conservation Alliance works to protect Alaska 's air, land and water by being a powerful voice for the conservation community in the civic arena.
Founded in 1997, the Alaska Conservation Alliance is a statewide non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose primary mission is to protect Alaska's natural environment through voter education, engagement, and advocacy. The Alliance is the only statewide coalition group uniting Alaska's conservation community and coordinating statewide grassroots into a powerful, cohesive force to impact public policy. We also educate policy makers and the public about environmental issues facing Alaska.
The Alaska Conservation Alliance houses Alaska's only environmental lobby. Our Legislative staff in Juneau works to influence state policy and hold Legislators and the Administration accountable for their actions. The Alliance also works with other member organizations to persuade local elected officials to pursue positive, pro-conservation measures. For more information on our advocacy efforts, visit our Advocacy page.
The Alliance educates Alaskans by participating in ballot measure campaigns,
statewide strategic issue campaigns, canvasses and get-out-the-vote
drives. Other Alliance voter education activities include voter ID, list
enhancement, polling, media, newsletters and this web site. For more information on our educational campaigns, visit 'Educating Alaskans'.
The Alliance keeps the Alaska conservation community coordinated. Alaska Conservation Alliance convenes the conservation community for strategic planning meetings in May and November each year. Ad hoc meetings occur for emerging issues, to revise strategies, share information, and strengthen working relationships.
