S.340 Transfers Public Wildlife Habitat to Private Ownership
By Bruce Baker
May 13, 2013
I’m a retired Deputy Director of the Alaska Department of Fish & Game’s Habitat Division and have been involved in Southeast Alaska forest management issues for 40 years. I’ve seen first-hand that Sealaska’s wildlife habitat protection is woefully inadequate, to put it kindly. The provisions in S.340 come nowhere close to requiring the level of fish and wildlife habitat protection that is required by federal laws and regulations which apply to national forest land. S.340 should not be passed by Congress.
