On Friday, August 9th, CNN released a story explaining the latest inner workings at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). CNN learned that the “Environmental Protection Agency told staff scientists that it was no longer opposing a controversial Alaska mining project… just one day after President Trump met with Alaska’s governor.”
This is now the second time that the EPA officials have directed staff to remove protections for Bristol Bay. What has become completely clear is that the decision to permit the Pebble Mine is no longer based on science, but politics.
Please contact your elected officials and ask them to step in. This summer Bristol Bay recorded the second largest sockeye harvest on record, and we need to do everything we can to protect this amazing place.
