Visitors highlight the need to protect our treasures

We just entertained company from out of town and one of the highlights of their trip here was the Kenai Fjords National Park Tour. A vital part of that tour is the unique animals that call it home there. I would expect protection for these special animals and their environment that make this such a wonderous place to behold.

The House Interior Appropriation Committee has passed a spending bill that would mean fewer protections for species at risk of extinction, more pesticides in our waters and less funding for our national wildlife refuges and other crucial conservation priorities.

This bill is an all-out attack on our environment and the natural treasures that are our children’s inheritance.
