Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is the crown jewel of America's refuge system.
Tucked away in the state's remote northeast corner, this 19.6 million acre wildlife sanctuary is an awe-inspiring natural wonder: A sweeping expanse of tundra studded with marshes and lagoons and laced with rivers dramatically situated between the rugged foothills of the Brooks Range and the wide, icy waters of the Beaufort Sea. This pristine place is under threat by an oil industry that sees not its beauty, but its profit-making potential.
