Good News from the Juneau Douglas Advisory Committee!

On December 11th, with a vote of 10 “yes” and 2 abstentions, the JDAC voted to prohibit bear snaring in Southeast Alaska! It would be terrific if the rest of the state’s ACs followed suit but so far only the JD committee seems to have the common sense and decency to do so.
In other news related to the JDAC, the Alaska Wildlife Alliance’s president, Tina Brown, was elected unanimously to a three-year term on the committee. Judging from her excellent service as president of the AWA, Tina will definitely be an asset to the group and to wildlife management in SE Alaska!
