The Tongass National Forest is a rare gem that is presently under threat of development. Backcountry Hunters & Anglers have made a new video and have ways for us to take action on this issue.
From Backcountry Hunters & Anglers:
Defend the Tongass by Taking Action Here: https://www.backcountryhunters.org/ta… The 9.3 million acres of Tongass National Forest inventoried roadless areas comprises habitat for a unique diversity of sought-after game species, including mountain goats, black-tailed deer and both brown and black bears. The Tongass also encompasses thousands of miles of salmon-rich waterways, legendary among anglers and fundamental to the state’s commercial salmon industry. These valuable resources are upheld by the Roadless Rule, a collaborative management approach that was adopted following one of the most extensive public engagement campaigns in the history of federal rulemaking.
