The Admiralty National Monument covers almost a million acres of alpine tundra, rugged coastline, and old growth rainforest.

It is also referred to as ?Kootznoowoo? by its native Tlingit people. The term, meaning ?Fortress of the Bear,? gives recognition to the site having the highest concentration of brown bears in the entire world.

It is also not just famous for its brown bears as it offers visitors and residents wilderness fishing on its remote mountain lakes. Its rich cultural heritage is also evident in its native traditional village, Angoon, which is the only permanent settlement in the island.

Designated as a national monument in 1980, it was brought publicly by offering tours and putting more focus on its conservation.
