Alaska Legislators Send Clear Message to BC

Rivers Without Borders wants 2024 to be the year we see significant, no turning back progress by British Columbia to finally get Tulsequah Chief closed and cleaned up.  This will be a major environmental success in its own right toward returning southeast Alaska’s top salmon producing river system to a pristine status.  Bigger picture, the remediation will go far to transition the Taku beyond mining, clearing the way for the Taku River Tlingit First Nation’s Indigenous Protected and Conserved Area to bring full protection to more than half of the spectacular 4.5 million acre watershed.  But the Province needs to get moving …


The  start of the year letter from Alaska legislators, attached below, expresses impatience and calls for action from a downstream perspective.  We believe it’s just the message BC needs to hear, and we’ll do what we can to encourage more of the same message.  It’s time!
