Wild Alaska: The Wilderness SocietyNo place in the U.S. is more vast, more stunning or more wild than Alaska. A full 57 million acres of designated wilderness -- sixty percent of our country's total -- can be found here, within the 13 national parks, 16 national wildlife refuges and two national forests of Alaska. There are hundreds of animal species that depend on these lands, and they are as colorful as their names: puffin, Dall sheep, muskoxen, pika. Here one can still hear the wolf's call of the wild.
