PARTNERSHIPS FOR HARMONY IN NATURE... For more than two thousand years humans have shared the Chilkoot River Valley with salmon, brown bears and eagles. As the home for many generations of Chilkoot Natives, the land is a repository of cultural significance, as well as prime wildlife habitat. The lower river corridor is currently used by local residents and travelers for subsistence and sport fishing, for wildlife viewing and commercial tourism. Increased pressure on the resource has called into question whether the balance of human and bear activity can continue. The Alaska Chilkoot Bear Foundation works to forge partnerships to ensure that all elements of the ecosystem will continue to exist in harmony for generations to come.
