Thank you for your interest in providing scoping input about the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The University of Leeds is an international leader in providing unbiased scoping input for public lands management in Europe and North America. An accurate description of public perceptions is important to assist management and scientists in defining priorities in the planning phase of public lands management.

Information collected will be available from the University of Leeds at this website at a later point and will be summarized for the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to help everyone understand input received.
