Grantee:  Northern Alaska Environmental Center

Result: 110,000 acres protected

In 2008, The Conservation Alliance funded Northern Alaska Environmental Center’s Yukon Flats Wildlife Refuge Campaign to protect three critical areas in Alaska’s Yukon from oil development.  In 2010, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service formally halted the Yukon Flats Wildlife Refuge land trade and nullified the proposed exchange agreement that would have propelled oil drilling in these sensitive wild lands and rivers; thus protecting 110,000 acres from oil and gas development.
