Feds to 60 million anglers - We don't need you
UNESCO designated the following parks in the Yukon as a World Heritage Site. It is the largest internationally protected area in the world.
- Kluane National Park, Yukon, Canada
- Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Reserve
- Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska, USA (added 1992)
- Tatshenshini-Alsek Wilderness Park, British Colombia (added 1994)
The Tatshenshini-Alsek river system contributes 95% of the chinook salmon, 90% of the sockeye salmon and 75% of the coho salmon for the multi-million dollar commercial fishing industry in the Dry Bay area of the Gulf of Alaska. This river system is one of only three major salmon-bearing rivers on the northern Pacific coast, with an important sustenance fishery for the people of the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations being found at Klukshu.
