alaska needs our help!
ALASKA—the Last Frontier—a dream destination for countless sportsmen and women…needs our help!
Bristol Bay, Alaska, is one of the best places in America to hunt and fish, and it’s at risk of being ruined by a massive foreign-owned open-pit mine called Pebble Mine. The monstrosity would create 10 billion tons of toxic waste needing to be stored safely and forever. But this month we received good news - we have the opportunity to conserve this world-class area and protect 14,000 fishing jobs with the Clean Water Act.
Now, we hunters and anglers need to unite to make these common sense measures actually stick, safeguarding this “trip of a lifetime” sporting destination.
This is a huge milestone - please take action today and voice your support for Clean Water Act protections for Bristol Bay.
Bristol Bay is home to one of the last great wild salmon fisheries on the planet, not to mention world-class grizzly, moose and caribou hunting opportunities. If built, Pebble would become the largest open pit mine in North America, posing a huge risk to Bristol Bay’s fish and game habitat as well as the livelihoods of local residents, workers and businesses from across the country that depend on fish and wildlife for their economic and cultural well-being.
Right now, we have an unprecedented opportunity to stop this “wrong mine in the wrong place.” Take Action Now to conserve Bristol Bay’s fish and wildlife for future generations to enjoy.
