Alaska’s Tongass National Forest includes a significant portion of the world’s last remaining temperate rainforest. This spectacular region supports abundant wildlife, including Marbled Murrelet, Queen Charlotte Goshawk, and Red-breasted Sapsucker. Audubon is working to conserve intact, ecologically significant watersheds in the Tongass and support the transition of forest management from the harvest of old-growth trees to more diversified uses.
