The Army Corps of Engineers was supposed to thoroughly review Pebble’s mining plans for Bristol Bay, Alaska – and the agency has failed. Pebble Mine could become one of the largest gold and copper mines in the world, located right at the headwaters of the greatest wild salmon stronghold we have left on Earth. Join Alaskans, fishermen and salmon advocates everywhere and send a comment today to the Army Corps before the May 30th deadline demanding this shoddy environmental review be halted. Then consider making a donation in support of Bristol Bay so our campaign partners can continue the fight!
Don’t allow a mine in an Alaskan salmon stronghold.
The Pebble Mine could become one of the largest gold and copper mines in the world – right in the headwaters of the greatest wild salmon stronghold we have left on Earth. Up to 60 million sockeye salmon migrate home to Bristol Bay each year, driving a $1.5 billion fishery, feeding local communities and sustaining a healthy wild ecosystem complete with grizzly bears and orca whales.
The EPA moved to protect Bristol Bay five years ago, but Pebble – a Canadian mining company – sued to stop protections and now has revived the mine with the help of the current Administration. The Administration is fast tracking the mine and has just released a draft environmental impact statement that scientists and former agency officials are calling the worst they’ve ever seen. We need your help to halt this shoddy permitting process and send Pebble back to the drawing board. TAKE ACTION THE LINKS ABOVE!
