Places We Protect

Use this map to explore our Gustavus Forelands Preserve and Alaska's vast public lands.

The Great Land, and Abundant Waters

Since 1988, The Nature Conservancy has used science to help safeguard Alaska’s lands and waters for nature and people. We’re working with people across Alaska to protect and restore the places that make Alaska a great place to live, work and play.

Our Priority Salmon Landscapes

Bristol Bay – Protecting habitat and researching salmon.

Matanuska-Susitna Basin – Restoring salmon passage and valuing ecosystem services.

Tongass – Restoring salmon streams and forests.

Legacies for Alaska

Creating preserves for the public to enjoy is also an important part of the Conservancy's legacy in Alaska. The Conservancy has helped to create the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, the Palmer Hay Flats State Game Refuge and other protected areas in Alaska.
