Habitat move order sent to Legislature

Gov. Frank Murkowski on Wednesday gave the Legislature his executive order shifting permitting authority for most development projects from the state's fish and wildlife department to its natural resources agency. The order puts the Department of Natural Resources in charge of weeding out project proposals that would harm water bodies important for anadromous fish such as salmon. It also transfers to DNR the Department of Fish and Game's responsibility to work with private forest landowners and timber owners to protect wildlife habitat. Currently Fish and Game is charged with helping forest and timber owners identify wildlife habitat and design measures for its protection.

Citing habitat, Fish and Game wants two timber sales canceled

ANCHORAGE - In what could be a test case for how the Department of Natural Resources handles difficult issues, the state Department of Fish and Game wants state foresters to cancel two logging sales on the Kenai Peninsula that biologists say could hurt brown bear and moose populations. At issue are two large swaths of beetle-killed timber, about 4,100 acres in all, a few miles east of Ninilchik.
