Sign-on letter calling on the Alaska State Legislature to create a State Wildlife Refuge at Tangle Lakes.
The Tangle Lakes region is a hub for hunting, fishing, hiking, canoeing, and camping. It is also wildlife-rich and includes wintering habitat of the Nelchina Caribou Herd. But it’s threatened by mining. Pure Nickel, a Canadian company with funding from the Japanese company ITOCHU, has conducted extensive explorations for nickel, copper, and platinum. The region’s champions have proposed creating a State Wildlife Refuge to protect the area from mining.
