Decades of old-growth forest logging in the Tongass National Forest have significantly reduced habitat for Alexander Archipelago Wolf (AA wolf) (Canis lupus ligoni) populations and their primary prey species, the Sitka black-tailed deer (Odocoileus hemionus sitkensis). Protecting these wolves is crucial as they play a vital role in maintaining the health of the Tongass ecosystem. Without them, the complex ecological web on which animals and humans depend would be forever changed. Through administrative action, research, and forest restoration, we can protect the Alexander Archipelago wolves from further decline and ensure the Tongass National Forest remains a vibrant hub of biodiversity for future generations.
