NANA Regional Corporation Files Intent to Sue Over Polar Bear Critical Habitat Designation

NANA Media Contact

NANA Regional Corporation, Inc. (NANA), Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (ASRC) and the North Slope Borough are part of a coalition of Alaska Native groups from the North Slope, northwest and southwest Alaska that have notified the Department of the Interior of their intent to seek judicial relief for the department's violation of the Endangered Species Act. The plaintiffs believe the federal government broke the law when it ignored the concerns of the Alaska Native community and designated more than 187,000 square miles as critical habitat for polar bears on Alaska's North Slope. That's an area larger than the state of California.
