SEACC is a coalition of 18 member groups in 14 communities throughout Southeast Alaska. The Wrangell Resource Council is one of these groups, and is made up of residents of Wrangell Island with livelihoods that range from commercial fishing and small timber mill operators to local businesspeople and health care providers. SEACC believes that ecological health should be the foundation for economic policy in Southeast Alaska, and that place-based economic development strategies are a key component of our region s ecological and economic stability.
Wrangell will create new jobs and new economic opportunities with this realistic and appropriate economic development project. Over ten years in the making, this marine center will increase the economic diversity of Wrangell, keeping it a livable, viable community.
