TRCP in Alaska

When it comes to quality places to hunt, fish, and trap, Alaska is unique and—in the minds of many—unparalleled. The Great Land is home to iconic fish and game species with significant recreational, subsistence, and cultural values. From the coastal rainforests of Southeast Alaska to the Arctic tundra, no other state offers more fish and wildlife habitat, or more hunting and angling opportunities in big, wild country.

Alaska Projects

The TRCP focuses our conservation efforts on more than 300 million acres of federal and state public lands within Alaska. As a solution-focused organization, the TRCP offers critical information to hunters and anglers about when and how to get involved to conserve habitat and maintain and grow our wildlife resources.

How we work

  • We prioritize the conservation of Alaska’s large, intact landscapes and watersheds that provide irreplaceable habitat for far-ranging and culturally important species, like caribou and salmon.
  • We solve problems by rolling up our sleeves and finding collaborative solutions to difficult natural resources challenges.
  • Our recommendations are guided by the best available science and informed by local knowledge.
  • We are collaborative, seeking to unite recreational hunters and anglers, guides, outfitters, and subsistence harvesters around shared priorities.
  • We focus on safeguarding important habitat that supports world-class fishing, hunting, and trapping opportunities for all user groups.
  • We believe that Alaska’s hunting, trapping, and fishing traditions are best served by improved coordination between state and federal managers, and reduced litigation.
