Save Alaska's Wild Salmon, Stop the Pebble Mine

Global mining companies are targeting Bristol Bay for a massive open pit mine – the proposed Pebble Mine. Bristol bay is an economic and ecological backbone of Alaska, supplying 14,000 jobs, generating some $480 million a year, and providing nearly 50% of the world's supply of wild sockeye salmon. It helps feed the world, local communities and a bounty of bears, bald eagles, beluga whales and other wildlife. If the mine is developed, it would be the largest open pit mine in North America, and generate roughly 10 billion tons of toxic mine waste that would bury important salmon habitat. We can protect it! Sign the petition today to add your support to the protection of the beautiful Bristol Bay.
