Statement from Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter for Alaska Coalition of Georgia

I've stood in front of the migrating Porcupine Caribou herd. I have been on a peninsula in the Beaufort Sea within 100 yards of musk oxen circled facing outwards when they heard Rosalynn and me hiding behind some tundra. I have had some wonderful experiences in Alaska, as have many who live there. Of all things I've ever done, nothing exceeds my pride in having committed to play a small part, at least, in the passage of legislation to protect the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge. I am thankful that many people nationwide are committed to continue the fight to preserve the natural treasure of Alaska. Conservation of the pristine Alaska wilderness is a concern not just for citizens of that state, but for citizens throughout the nation.
