The Alaska Watchable Wildlife Conservation Trust was established in 1991 by the Alaska Conservation Foundation in cooperation with the Alaska Department of Fish & Game. Each year, Alaska Conservation Foundation awards small grants (up to $5,000) from the Trust to support those projects that most effectively enhance sustainable wildlife viewing, promote wildlife education, and conserve the biological diversity of Alaska.
