Speak Up for Bristol Bay
For nearly a decade, we have fought to protect Bristol Bay from the proposed Pebble mine. As wild salmon populations decline globally, Bristol Bay's prolific wild salmon runs and the economies they support make it a place of international importance. It faces imminent threat from the proposed Pebble mine as well as hard rock mining on adjacent state and federal land. In order to stay thriving, the salmon must be protected from Pebble and other large-scale mining projects.
We are calling on you to help defend this incredible resource and the communities and ecosystems that depend on these magnificent fish.
The 90 day public comment period for the proposed Pebble Mine at the headwaters of Bristol Bay is now open. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has released a draft Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed mine, which fails to address the foreseeable impacts on Bristol Bay fisheries, communities, public lands, and cultures. This is our last chance to tell the lead permitting agency to oppose the Pebble Mine. Submit a comment, attend a public hearing, share with your friends, and tell your elected officials that we must protect Bristol Bay.
