Protect Wildlife in Alaska's Kachemak Bay

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game wants to end an 18-year ban on personal watercraft in Kachemak Bay and the Fox River Flats near Homer. This ban was instituted in 2001 in Kachemak Bay Critical Habitat Area after Fish and Game determined that personal watercraft usage is harmful to wildlife, such as whales, seabirds, and otters. Ending the ban will be detrimental to the wildlife which is now flourishing once again. You can submit your comment via email to Rick Green, rick.green@alaska.gov, until Jan. 21, 2020.
