The Draft Plan, which seeks to list species of greatest conservation need in Alaska, and use federal funding to monitor and protect them, is available for download here. Overall, the plan is very comprehensive and interesting, and its listings and concerns are well-presented. The problem of climate change is well-presented and actions to protect and preserve species in the face of climate change are committed to.
Public comment was solicited on the Draft Plan, with a deadline of September 4. DCC’s comments made suggestions, asked questions and pointed out problems with the scope of this plan. Read our comments below.
