PURPOSE: The review and revision of the Comprehensive Conservation Plan (CCP) for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (Arctic NWR) in northeastern Alaska is proposed. Originally established in 1960 as Arctic National Wildlife Range, Arctic NWR encompasses 19.3 million acres of land and water, including eight million acres of designated wilderness and three wild and scenic rivers (Ivishak, Sheenjek, and Wind rivers). At least 48 species of mammals are present at Arctic NWR, including several high-profile and special-status species: polar and grizzly bears, wolf, wolverine, Dalls sheep, moose, muskox, beluga whale, and two free-roaming caribou herds. At least 42 species of fish inhabit Refuge waters and more than...

PURPOSE: The exchange of lands between the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and Doyon, Limited is proposed to enhance the Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge of Alaska. Since the refuge was established in 1980, Doyon has been interested in acquiring federal oil and gas interests in the south-central portion of dedicated area. Under the terms of an agreement in principle between the FWS and Doyon, the U.S. government would receive fee title to at least 150,000 acres of Doyon lands, including both surface and subsurface rights, with priority fish and wildlife habitats that can be incorporated into the refuge. Doyon would receive fee title to approximately 110,000 acres of refuge lands, including both surface...

The document, with links, is divided into four volumes: an introduction, appendices, comment analysis, and sample of public comments.
PURPOSE: The implementation of a revised comprehensive conservation plan for the Kodiak National Wildlife of Alaska is proposed. The plan would replace the management plan adopted in 1987 and guide management of the refuge for the next 15 years. One of the 16 national refuges in Alaska, Kodiak Refuge encompasses 1.6 million acres of lands and waters on the Kodiak Archipelago. More specifically, the refuge includes the southwestern two-thirds of Kodiak Island all of Uganik Island, and 54,000 acres on Afognak and Ban islands. The refuge i9s rich in cultural and biological resources. Three levels of management direction are addressed with respect to conservation direction, specifically, regional management for all...

The National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS) is a network of 545 protected areas designated to manage and protect wildlife in the U.S. The 1997 NWRS Improvement Act requires the NWRS to be managed in a manner consistent with the preservation of its biological integrity, diversity, and environmental health. I used the principles of representation, redundancy, and resilience as indicators of biological integrity and diversity of 43 waterfowl species on NWRS lands. Waterfowl plays an extremely important role in the life of the American public and has been a priority conservation target for the NWRS for over 70 years. I evaluated the representation and redundancy of waterfowl species on National Wildlife Refuges (NWRs)...

PURPOSE: The implementation of a revised comprehensive conservation plan for the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge of Alaska is proposed. The plan, which would perpetuate or replace the currently in force 1985 management plan, would guide management of the refuge for the next 15 years. The 1.32-million-acre refuge, which lies on the Kenai Peninsula along the Turnagain Arm and Cook Inlet, has been described as "Alaska in miniature" with reference to its cross-section of Alaskan habitats. Key issues identified during scoping include those related to large-scale habitat changes and the use of fire, management of existing facilities for public use while ensuring natural resource protection, enhancement of wildlife-dependent...

Like many protected areas, Denali National Park and Preserve faces a variety of challenges in its management planning. As an Alaska conservation unit that has been significantly expanded by the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act of 1980 (ANILCA), Denali faces the additional responsibility of acknowledging that its management of controversial issues affects how other wilderness areas are managed throughout the state. In dealing with controversies such as the appropriate types and levels of snow mobile use and in amending its general management plan; the park has recognized the importance of non-material values to the overall significance of this sub-arctic ecosystem. Non-material values such as recreational...
