I am writing to you on behalf of over 1,000 members of the Coalition of National Park Service Retirees (CNPSR), who collectively represent more than 30,000 years of national park management experience. CNPSR studies, educates, speaks, and acts for the preservation of America’s National Park System. We engage primarily in issues that have system-wide implications, including proposed laws, national policies and regulations, and issues at the park level where outcomes may set precedent or long-term direction. The purpose of this letter is to comment on the National Park Service (NPS) proposal to amend its regulations for sport hunting and trapping in national preserves in Alaska.
