About the Petition
For more than a decade, mining companies have been fighting to establish a massive, open-pit mine at the headwaters of the greatest sockeye salmon fishery in the world: Alaska’s spectacular Bristol Bay.
The Environmental Protection Agency is close to stopping the proposed Pebble Mine, which would be North America’s largest open-pit mine and a toxic disaster for Alaska’s Bristol Bay. It is more critical than ever that you take a moment to encourage EPA to do the right thing for Alaska’s wildlife, its people, and the world’s greatest sockeye salmon habitat.
EPA is taking public comments right now from people who care about protecting Alaska’s wildlife, American jobs, and salmon-rich watersheds. Unless the federal government hears from you—from all of us—a decade of conservation work and the world’s richest salmon-producing streams could be wasted.
