Wildlife Stewardship in National Park Service Areas in Alaska

Wildlife stewardship on NPS units in Alaska is guided by the Organic Act, the General Authorities Act, the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, Federal regulations, and NPS Management Policies. This document consolidates this collective guidance to serve as a focused reference for NPS staff as they evaluate the myriad issues and decisions facing the agency and the wildlife held in its trust. Further, this document will inform members of the public, fellow agencies, and partners about the considerations and constraints used by NPS when implementing mandates relative to wildlife. Read the wildlife stewardship report (published in May 2013).
