The Alaska Watchable Wildlife Conservation Trust was established in 1991 by the Alaska Conservation Foundation (ACF) in cooperation with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G). Each year, ACF 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.

Alaska Conservation Foundation envisions an inspiring Alaska that is naturally thriving, biologically and culturally diverse, rich in wildlands, bountiful in terrestrial and marine life, sustainable in its economic development and thoughtfully protected—forever.

Alaska Conservation Foundation protects Alaska’s natural environment and the diverse cultures and ways of life it sustains. We do this by promoting conservation philanthropy and by strategically directing resources to conservation leaders, organizations, and initiatives.
