It is North America's most productive wild salmon region. It provides over 14,000 fish-based jobs. Its remote, quiet, clean rivers offer the opportunity for the catch of a lifetime. There are an abundance of wildlife and hunting opportunities. And it's the location of thriving, generations-old subsistence based cultures.
Whatever it is that you value about Bristol Bay, Alaska - it is STILL in jeopardy by the proposed Pebble Mine.
Yes, this fight has gone on forever. Yes, you have probably commented in the past. Today, we need you to do it again.
Right now, the EPA is accepting comments on whether they should erase the protections for Bristol Bay over a million Americans asked for, or whether they should keep them. Please take a moment to tell them to keep Bristol Bay safe from Pebble Mine.
Pebble Mine is a bad idea. The science is clear that it cannot operate safely alongside wild salmon runs. The residents and businesses of the region have said they don't want it, yet mine backers refuse to listen.
Right now, we have an opportunity to demonstrate that we are still united in opposing Pebble Mine. Please help us make a strong showing. Take action today.
Please submit your comment below to add your voice to the official EPA comment period and tell them that Pebble Mine is the wrong mine, in the wrong place. Right here: http://www.savebristolbay.org/
