by Mary Pemberton The Associated Press Tuesday, May 4, 2010 ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Three former top administrators with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game are warning the governor about a bill allowing a Native corporation to hand-pick lands in the Tongass National Forest. The three say in a letter that the bill could create severe economic problems for Southeast Alaska if it leads to the Queen Charlotte goshawk and the Alexander Archipelago wolf being listed under the Endangered Species Act. The letter says a federal plan is in place to keep the two species off the list by creating old-growth forest reserves where logging would not occur.
