Off Alaska’s Northwest coast, under the waters of the Bering and Chukchi Seas, lies the terrain humans used to cross into North America from Asia. Evidence of those travels, and the migration of animals and plants, is found throughout this national preserve.
First protected as a national monument in 1978 by President Jimmy Carter. Congress made it a national preserve in the 1980 Alaska lands act.
Size: 2.7 million acres. Located in northwest Alaska, between Nome and Kotzebue.
