Save the Great Arctic Refuge Wilderness!

Save the Great Arctic Refuge Wilderness!

Today, the National Wilderness Preservation System has 757 Wilderness Area units totaling 109,512,959 acres. Each Wilderness Area has great worth, but some stand out. Among those, the Wilderness Area that to me is the Flagship of the National Wilderness Preservation System is the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge Wilderness Area of 8 million acres in the eastern Brooks Range of northeastern Alaska.
