Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

Enormous, even by Alaska standards, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR to locals) encompasses six different ecozones that support a vast diversity of plants and wildlife. While ANWR is one of the most difficult of all national refuges to reach, ecotours within this remote northeast corner of Alaska are available, most with a distinctly pro-conservation stance toward resource development in this controversial area.
