Wildlife Refuge Plans to Address Cattle Damage to Islands

Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge has completed a public scoping process to identify issues and alternatives to address damage from unauthorized cattle on Wosnesenski and Chirikof Islands. We received 156 comments or suggestions. We welcome a new team member in October 2014 - John Martin from our regional planning office, who will help us draft environmental impact statements for each island. Once these draft documents are written, we will make them public and again ask for comments before making any final decisions.
