Senate Hearing to examine wildlife management authority within the State of Alaska
Last edited 7/10/2015
The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources held a full committee hearing on wildlife management in Alaska under the Alaska National Interest Lands Act (ANILCA) and the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA), with a focus on subsistence management issues. Subsistence under ANILCA is the “customary and traditional uses by rural Alaska residents of wild, renewable resources for direct personal or family consumption.” Wildlife management and subsistence in Alaska is a complex issue governed by many statutes and informed by a number of perspectives of stakeholders and managers.
