Anyone can be an advocate for Alaska’s wildlife. Decisions are being made in our government regarding our wildlife, and since the animals can’t speak for themselves, it’s up to us. Every raised voice can make a difference.

Call Your Public Official
- Find your public official’s phone number here:
- Take the time to write down what you’d like to say. It’s important to be clear about your stance on a specific issue, and to keep it concise.
- Introduce yourself and make it clear that you live in the area that the official represents.
- Explain why you’re calling. Public officials’ offices can be busy, and only the most important details will often be written down. Say exactly what issue you oppose or support. Here’s a sample script:
“Hello, my name is John Doe, a constituent from Fairbanks, Alaska. I do not need a response. I am opposed to _______ and I strongly encourage the Senator to oppose it as well. Thank you for all your hard work.”
- Thank the legislative aide for their time.
