Alaska: “The Great Land”

For most, Alaska is a faraway land of immense landscapes, tall mountain ranges, largely untouched wilderness and – above all – great beauty. For the nearly 650,000 people who call the state home, it is the nearby land from whose rich environments and coastal oceans one draws physical and spiritual sustenance; whose harsh realities are dictated by the change between dark and never-dark seasons; whose vastness magnifies the importance and dependence on local community. For all, Alaska is “the Great Land,” an awe-inspiring land increasingly at risk from climate change.
