This GrantCraft case study, developed for Foundation Center's FundingtheOcean.org portal, explores how the Oak Foundation, a supporter of marine conservation in Alaska, responded when national policy lifted protections from Bristol Bay. It includes the perspective of one of it's grantees in the area, the Alaska Marine Conservation Council, and how they worked together locally to establish a campaign to continue protecting Bristol Bay.
