Alaska Conservation

More great stuff via Moldy Chum:

The Unuk River runs from British Columbia to Southeast Alaska; adjacent to the Misty Fjords National Monument near Ketchikan, Alaska. One of southern Alaska’s largest rivers in the Ketchikan area, it produces more King Salmon than any stream in the region.
A company called Seabridge Gold is pursuing the permitting of a large open pit mine 400 times bigger than the Kensington Mine. This proposed mine, Kerr-Sulphurets-Mitchell, would dump 2.1 Billion Tons of toxic mine and acid waste in the Unuk and Nass River watersheds.

From TU:
Dream of fishing Bristol Bay? Been scheming about your next Alaska trip? Now’s the time to make it happen.  Through March 30th (the deadline was extended to give you a bit more time to get your fishing buddies together), book a trip with any one of 26 lodges or adventure camps listed with Alaska Fly Out and 5% of the trips cost will be donated to our Save Bristol Bay campaign. You fish. They donate. Its that simple.
Visit the folks over at Alaska Fly Out to learn more about lodge packages available and book your Alaska fishing adventures.
