The Alaska Fish & Wildlife Conservation Fund (Fund) was certified as a 501c(3) charitable organization in 1983. The general charitable, educational, and scientific purposes of the organization include:
  • Information on fish and wildlife resources, outdoor activities and resource conservation programs;
  • Public education on the American and Alaskan heritage of hunting, trapping and fishing;
  • Litigation if necessary to protect hunting, trapping, fishing, access and scientific wildlife management;
  • Promotion and explanation of wildlife conservation and scientific wildlife management through various media;
  • To provide other organizations assistance in promoting these purposes;
  • Provide information on critical issues affecting fish and wildlife and their uses.
      • The Fund was established with a recognition that public policy decisions are increasingly being made in the courts. In cooperation with Alaska Outdoor Council, the Fund allows us to address all three legs of the public policy stool: administrative, legislative, and judicial. Over the years, it has been directly involved in high profile and statewide precedent cases such as Babbitt v. Alaska and Katie John v. Alaska.
