Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve

Embarking on our raft trip in search of…

The Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve was created in 1982 and was established to protect and perpetuate the world’s largest concentration of Bald Eagles and their critical habitat. It also sustains and protects the natural salmon runs and allows for traditional uses provided such uses do not adversely affect preserve resources.

  Skagway-4924_900   The Preserve consists of 48,000 acres of river bottom land of the Chilkat, Kleheni, and Tsirku Rivers – boundaries which were designated to include only areas important to eagle habitation. Virtually every portion of the preserve is used by eagles at some time during the year. Skagway-4926_900
