We believe that strong communities are engaged communities.
We are only as strong as the communities we work within. Cook Inletkeeper believes that a strong community means a community that is eagerly engaged in the political process as well as the reverence for healthy habitat.
With important issues ranging from salmon habitat protections to funding for schools, we monitor Alaska Government and local elections because they impact the landscape and the communities we care about. Yours. Policy shapes our communties and our relationship to clean water and healthy habitat - we can organize and build power to build the Alaska we want to see.
Drawdown: Our Climate Solutions
At Cook Inletkeeper, our key issues: protecting clean water and healthy salmon - depend on us reversing global warming. In response, we launched the Drawdown Climate Action Series to help our communities identify meaningful and well researched solutions that don’t just stabilize levels of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere, but that actually draw emissions back down to sustainable levels.
Electronic waste is the fastest growing segment of our nation’s waste stream. Electronics may be safe to use, but when discarded they can leak toxic chemicals like lead, mercury and cadmium into our water and air.
