Letter: Protecting wild Alaska important

I've just returned from a trip to Washington, D.C., to participate in our American democracy. As a volunteer for Alaska Wilderness League, I learned more about issues affecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge's Coastal Plain, the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, the Tongass National Forest, and the dual threat posed by climate change and drilling to the habitat of polar bears and other marine wildlife in the Arctic Ocean.

I had the opportunity to meet with Rep. Ron Kind and his staff and would like to thank them for taking the time to sit down with me. The future of wild Alaska is important to all Americans because these public lands and waters belong to all of us.

I thank Rep. Kind for co-sponsoring the Udall-Eisenhower Arctic Wilderness Act (H.R. 139.) This legislation will permanently protect the Coastal Plain of the Arctic Refuge as wilderness. We owe that to future generations.
