Update: Alaska House approves Denali wolf buffer; other wildlife bills on hold

House Bill 105 (HB105) would prohibit wolf hunting and trapping in two areas adjacent to the northeastern border of Denali National Park and Preserve. The bill passed by a vote of 22-18, thanks to the House Majority Coalition of mostly Democrats. The vote came on the last day of the session, so time ran out before it could be assigned to Senate committees. Unfortunately, the Senate is firmly controlled by anti-wildlife Republicans, and the bill’s future in that chamber is not promising.
