Breeding, Importing, or Transplanting Wildlife
Breeding, importing or transplanting wildlife can have significant adverse effects on local wildlife populations, including introduction of genes and diseases from other places that can weaken or destroy existing populations of native species. To protect the health and diversity of its natural wildlife, Alaska has passed stringent laws on propagating, stocking, and transplanting wildlife species.
