Alaskas mountains rise like walls; four seas and unimaginable
distances form a mighty moat; and a patchwork of national parks and
wildlife refuges protects more than a third of the state. Its a
fortress for wildlife.

Shielded from civilization, bears, wolves, moose, and caribou cast their
huge shadows from coast to coast, and musk oxen travel the far north
like refugees of the last ice age. Migratory birds flock river deltas
each summer, and raptors prowl Alaskan skies year-round.

As with any fortress, wild Alaskas perimeter is especially vulnerable.
Tankers laden with oil from bays and coastal wetlands skirt the
seaboard. Though now protected, endangered whales resist to rebuild
their populations. Like sea lions and other marine mammals, they now
must compete with massive trawlersfloating factoriesfor the seas
falling harvest.

In this research paper I would like to investigate extinction problem.
Many facts I have found show that this problem is very urgent. I am not
sure that everybody understands it but if more people realize this many
problems will be solved.     


Wildlife can be found everywhere in Alaska, from cities where moose,
bears and wolves roam to more than 18 million acres designated by
Congress as wilderness areas as part of the National Wilderness
Preservation System. However, most refuges in Alaska require travel via
air transport, making them difficult and expensive to reach. 

Many species in Alaska such as black and brown bears, wolves, moose and
many others are on the verge of Extinction. They are interesting in
their own way. So, lets learn about them more than we do.

Black bears are usually smaller than brown bears. They can look alike,
but there are several ways you can tell the bears apart. Black bears
don't have a shoulder hump like brown bears. Black bears also have a
straight face, compared to the brown bear's bowl-shaped face. Their paws
are different too. Black bears' claws are short and curved and brown
bears have longer, straighter claws. Black bears have been known to live
in every state, except Hawaii. They can be found in most forested areas
in Alaska. 

Like brown bears, black bears hibernate in the winter. They start
hibernating in the fall and come out of their dens in the spring. Their
dens are found in hollow trees or rocks. They also build dens on the
ground. A person may walk right over a bear den and not even know it,
unless the bear wakes up, of course.

Moose like bears can be brown or black but they have longer legs and
larger body than bears do. Alaska is full of moose. In Anchorage, you
have a good chance of spotting a moose on the Coastal Trail or in
