Dear Members and AMF Supporters,
Thank you for your patronage and support over these many years. We love the AMF mission and delivering moose to you.
However, at this time, it is necessary for AMF to suspend roadkill salvage operations due to the following circumstanses:
- Lack of funding. Due to the COVID-19 situation and the number of people unable to afford memberships, AMF is unable to fund the resources necessary to operate (i.e. insurance, fuel, maintenance, etc.)
- Lack of qualified volunteer drivers. In spite of our diligent efforts to recruit qualified volunteers, AMF has not been able to find a consistent and reliable workforce to deliver roadkill animals. As many of you know, since 9/2015, this role has mainly been filled by Don Dyer, Steven Dyer, Brandon Dyer, Bryan Dyer, Jacob Dyer, Laurie Speakman, Matt Holmgaard- all of which have delivered a combined total of over 4,000 moose since 9/2015. We thank them for their dedication and professionalism.
- Deferred truck maintenance. Of our five trucks, only three are road safe at this time. All three of those trucks are in need of maintenance as well to remain road safe. We simply don’t have the financial resources to keep them in service.
As such, AMF will not be accepting new memberships or renewing expired memberships.
AMF will be processing pro-rated refunds for ACTIVE memberships over the next 60 days.
FYI, Since the end of the State of Alaska DOT contract in March 2017, the AMF mission has been 100% volunteer-run with no compensation paid to AMF employees or other personnel.
