Thousands of wolves set to be shot or poisoned...145 black bears killed...more than 120 birds euthanized after they landed in oily sludge...caribou herds disappearing....Why? Canada's tar sands extraction operations are causing major impacts to wildlife habitat. And instead of restoring the forests the species need to survive, the Canadian oil industry and government are putting profits ahead of sound ecosystem management.
In 2010, National Wildlife Federation staff traveled to Alberta, Canada, to see this destruction first hand. "No amount of photos, conversations with advocates, or ground tours with industry, can prepare you for what you experience when you see Alberta’s tar sands fields from the air. The scale is mind-boggling," wrote Felice Stadler.
That's why National Wildlife Federation is on the front lines of the fight to stop a massive tar sands pipeline from being built across the U.S. heartland. With the help of hundreds of thousands of wildlife advocates, we were able to make it clear to President Obama that he must reject the Keystone XL pipeline. He did.
The battle is not over. Big Oil is continuing to lobby members of Congress to try to overrule President Obama's decision. As early as this week, the U.S. Senate could vote on legislation to try and resurrect this dangerous project.
National Wildlife Federation will continue to fight tar sands expansion and protect wolves, bears, birds, caribou and the many wildlife feeling the impacts of this dangerous operation. Please stand with us!
