Testify for Alaska's Wolves
and Bears!

Proposed legislation would accelerate the addition
of new predator control areas in the State

You Can Help!

Your testimony is urgently needed this coming Wednesday, January 30th, 1:00pm at your nearest Legislative Information Office or at the Alaska State House in Juneau. If you are not able to testify in person, please go to the Alaska State Public Opinion Message System and send your comments electronically prior to the 1:00pm January 30th deadline.

SB 176 and HB 256 would clear the way for the Alaska Board of Game to expand state wolf and bear killing programs. These bills would immunize the Board of Game from corrective lawsuits. Simply put, the Board of Game is attempting to provide legislation that would exempt them from legal responsibility for irresponsible wildlife management. Apparently they are annoyed at repeatedly being found by the courts to be in violation of their own regulations.

Suggested Talking Points

The Alaska Board of Game should not be allowed to immunize themselves from lawsuits, especially when they are often on the losing end of those lawsuits.

Please note that your testimony should be brief and to the point.

Forward this e-mail to those you know who might be interested.

See you there!

P.S. There's an important Board of Game meeting coming up this January 25-28. RSVP now to attend! The meeting is in Anchorage, in the large conference room in the Coast International Inn (just north of International Airport Road and just west of Spenard, at 3450 Aviation Avenue). It begins on Friday morning at 8:30, and goes all the way through late afternoon each day through Monday. Please attend all you can, listen, and show your support for wildlife conservation.
