Help Bring us Home!

After years of fundraising, we're so close to making our final payment of $66,000 on the AWF field station. Help us with the final push, and invest in permanent research infrastructure in the heart of Southeast Alaska's inside passage.

What's our field station all about?

In 2016 AWF made the first payment on a multi-use field station committed to conservation and environmental stewardship in Southeast Alaska.  The Center for Coastal Conservation (CCC) is AWF's permanent base for scientific study and stewardship. Our field station provides the infrastructure required to research important regional conservation issues, and allows AWF to invest in the next generation of researchers by providing unparalleled field research opportunities to young scientists.


A 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving Alaska’s marine mammals and their habitat through direct conservation actions, inspired research and engaging education programs.
