"It is vital that the Forest Service take steps to protect the public's land from development and respond to the outpouring of public pressure for declaring the Delta a protected wilderness," said Tony Turrini, director of the National Wildlife Federation's Alaska office.
The long-term vision of NWF and the Copper River Delta Coalition is to permanently protect the Delta and its world-famous salmon by having the land designated as a federal wilderness area.Public support for this vision has been overwhelming.By mid-December 2000, more than 30,000 citizens from across Alaska and the U.S. had written to the Forest Service demanding wilderness protections for the Delta, as well as natural treasures within the Prince William Sound region of Alaska.
Among those who have written the Forest Service to support Delta wilderness were more than 100 residents of Cordova, Alaska, the town at the heart of the Delta's thriving commercial fishery, including a former mayor, several fishermen, and several business owners.Support also came from hundreds of salmon consumers from across the nation.

"The three levels allow a variety of businesses to enter at different places in the program," said Tony Turrini, board president of AGA. "Businesses that are certified will be highlighted on the AGA website and be able to use the AGA logo in their own marketing efforts."
Adventure Green Alaska program benefits for businesses will include recognition on the program website: www.adventuregreenalaska.org, highlights in travel articles, and potentially in advertisements in travel-related magazines. Turrini says program directors also want to be able to offer training and additional resources to businesses interested in receiving the sustainable tourism certification.
"During this process, we're learning there are businesses in Alaska that are doing some really innovative things. We want to share these stories with visitors, but also with other businesses to show that they can do good things for the environment and for their bottom line," Turrini said.
