In the Great Lakes, 540,000 barrels of oil are coursing beneath the Straits of Mackinac each day through a 60-plus year old pipeline.
It is an accident waiting to happen. And every day the urgent and immediate risk of unprecedented disaster threaten to irreparably damage Lake Michigan and Lake Huron for decades to come.
A spill from this pipeline would destroy precious wildlife habitat, ruin local economies, pollute our Great Lakes and be impossible to fully clean up.
Add your name to the list of citizens who want Line 5 shut down! Tell Michigan’s Governor Snyder to SHUT DOWN LINE 5!!
Note: This action is only available to residents of Michigan.
Majestic great blue herons hunt for food in the shallow waters along the edges of the Great Lakes, but they are at risk from plans to pump tar sands oil in pipelines through the Straits of Mackinac.
Help protect Great Lakes wildlife by editing and sending a message to your U.S. senators, urging them to protect the Great Lakes from tar sands oil spills.
Note: This action is only available to people with a U.S. Senator.
