The Conservation Fund is working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect the conservation values of several Native allotments along the Togiak River within the wilderness area of the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge. Agreements have been reached on nine tracts along the Togiak River with a total of 1,360 acres. The agreements are moving towards closing in the next few months.
All of the properties currently under agreement are along the salmon rich Togiak River, which is the primary source of salmon for local Native communities, a major supplier of the fish caught commercially in the Togiak District, the site of a popular and productive sport fishery.
