Step Up and Help Save Bristol Bay!

It’s been an on-going battle for the past decade and still, the proposed open pit copper and gold mine known as Pebble is still posing a serious threat to Alaska and it’s salmon. For those who may not have heard of it, this could be the world’s largest open pit mine at the headwaters of the most prolific sockeye salmon run in the world. It’s a resource that provides countless jobs for commercial, sport fishing and subsistence fishermen every year and also provides over half of the world’s salmon. It’s a resource that is completely irreplaceable.

Yesterday, Pruitt proposed to reverse the salmon protections implemented by the Obama Administration a few years ago. It’s a hard hit for Alaska and the fight against this mine. If you want to make your voice heard and tell the EPA why we must keep Bristol Bay protected, please take a moment voice your thoughts during the current Public Commenting Period open by the EPA – this period closes on Tuesday, October 17th.
