For half a century, Izembek National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska has been recognized for the ecological value of its unique wetlands and their importance to migratory birds. It is a spectacular habitat of bears, salmon, and walrus, containing both volcanoes and glaciers. Yet there has been pressure for nearly four decades to build a road through Izembek’s federally designated wilderness.
