MISSION: To protect the special places of the world’s largest temperate rainforest, promote conservation, and advocate for sustainability in human use of natural resources. Inspired by the land, wildlife, cultures and communities of Southeast Alaska, SEACC strives to ensure this interconnected whole exists for future generations.
For more than 40 years, SEACC has brought local voices together to defend the last great salmon strongholds on our planet, protecting the foundation of a $1 billion fishing industry that powers our local communities and supplies wild salmon to the world.
Our members are the fishermen, hunters, scientists, small saw millers, Alaska Natives, hikers, paddlers, and business owners who live, work, and play in Southeast Alaska. We're united by our love of this place, and our unique, salmon-based way of life.
We don’t show up to work at SEACC for any reason other than to make the world a better place for all those who call Southeast Alaska home.
Over nearly the last half-century, we’ve done just that. But past success doesn’t guarantee anything in the future, and we know we have to earn your support by continuing to do what we’re here to do: change Southeast Alaska for the better.
Increasingly, this means working across nontraditional boundaries to get our work done. With wealth inequality at a record high, and climate change connecting social and environmental problems, the time is now to band together for justice across every line that has ever divided us.
What does that mean here in Southeast? We think it means renewing our commitment to what unites all of us, and pushing hard where we have common ground - our close-knit communities and our unique ability to fish, hunt, and play in the most beautiful and abundant place in the United States.
Together, we can work locally to build prosperity and resiliency into our Southeast Alaskan communities amid a changing climate and a political system dominated by transnational corporations. We hope you’ll join us with a donation of time or money, and also let us know how we can best join you by serving your cause and your needs.
