How Washington misrepresents ANWR and the Alaska way of life (ft. Tyler Freel of Tundra Talk)

“When ANWR—the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge —was created in the area in question that … we’re going to be issuing leases for is area 1002. They call it it’s a small portion of ANWR that’s on the Arctic coast. Just to the east of current like active drilling areas. And that area was not originally supposed to be part of ANWR…overall, I would say, generally, Alaska is positive towards  responsible development of the area. I know that the rest of the slope is probably the cleanest produced, like most responsibly produced, oil in the country.” — Tyler Freel, host of Tundra Talk podcast

In Episode 186 of District of Conservation, Gabriella interviews Tyler Freel of the Tundra Talk Podcast. Freel is also a contributing writer to Outdoor Life. 

Tyler and Gabriella discuss the uniqueness of Alaska, how it’s managed, why Washington and some public land hunters don’t understand their way of life, balanced use, misconceptions about ANWR exploration/Section 1002, Permanent Fund, Temporary Wildlife Special Action Request WSA21-01 that will close millions of acres to hunting moose and caribou, his assessment of Secretary Haaland’s performance so far, balancing support for gun rights and public lands, Travel Alaska advertising in the Lower-48, and more.
