Tell EPA: Protect Alaska's Parks from Destructive Mining!
Lake Clark National Park and Preserve was designated in 1980 to protect Bristol Bay’s one-of-a-kind ecosystem. It protects the headwaters of the Kvichak and Nushagak River -- the heart of the world-famous Bristol Bay salmon run and the home of a $2billion fishing industry.
Only 15 miles away, a threat to all of this has been proposed: Pebble Mine. It would be the largest open pit gold and copper mine in North America and is projected to dump 10 billion tons of toxic water waste that would poison our salmon and destroy the ecosystem, local business and industries that rely on it.
Bristol Bay remains at risk because the Environmental Protection Agency has not yet acted to permanently protect the watershed from mining.
We must urge the Environmental Protection Agency to permanently stop Pebble Mine. Send Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan a personalized message today.
