Alpacka Raft has joined The Conservation Alliance as a new member supporting the organization’s mission to protect and restore North America’s last wild spaces. Alpacka Raft joins a group of more than 235 like-minded companies to support the grassroots conservation community working to protect the wild places that benefit outdoor recreation. With the support of its members, The Conservation Alliance has contributed more than $22 million dollars since the organization was founded in 1989.
“We are passionate about advocating for the protection of intact, and undeveloped wilderness landscapes,” said Sarah Tingey, co-owner and operations director of Alpacka Raft. “Becoming a member of The Conservation Alliance is a great way for us to amplify the impact we’re able to have as a small company, and connect with other like-minded business leaders who share our similar values.”
While Alpacka Raft is involved in numerous clean water, and public land initiatives, the company’s primary advocacy work focuses around protection efforts for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. Alpacka Raft recently launched a limited edition color pattern for 2019 – Arctic Sky – and a portion of proceeds support efforts and organizations actively working to protect the Refuge.
“We are excited to have Alpacka Raft join our community of passionate, conservation-minded companies,” said John Sterling, Executive Director of The Conservation Alliance. “Alpacka Raft joins us and the rest of our members in a collective commitment to fund local grassroots conservation projects. We know that with Alpacka Raft’s footprint in the outdoor industry and passion for the outdoors, they have a lot to offer The Conservation Alliance.”
