Alaska Moose Conservation Fund
Promoting Abundance — Improving Safety
The Orphaned Moose Calf Rescue & Release Program was created to rescue, rear, and release moose calves whose mothers have been killed. The calves are tracked for their first winter with radio collars.
26 Orphaned calves rescued from 2011 to 2013. Calves released to Copper River Delta for first time in over 60 years.
An ice jam on the Yukon River last Spring caused floods which left the Village of Galena devastated. Ninety percent of the homes were left in ruins and over seventeen tons of meat, including moose, fish, duck, and other wild game, were lost. And due to the weather that caused the storm, Galena residents haven't had the opportunity to restock their caches. We have the moose, but no way to get our supply of salvaged game to Galena. With your help, we can get this vital source of surplus food direct to those who need it the most.
To the AMF Salvage Drivers: Thank you for your ability to rise to the occasion, and mostly during the middle of the night to remove moose from the scenes of accidents and them deliver to local charities. You are the shining light of our program.
To the Alaskan Public: Thank you for jumpstarting the Diversionary Trails and Feeding Program. Through your donations, AMF built the first 3 stations. After that, the State came through and funded the rest.
