Protect Brown Bear Habitat from Toxic Mining

Brown Bear 
Progress: 73%
Progress: 73%
Alerts Taken: 36598     Goal: 50000



In Bristol Bay, Alaska, brown bears depend on the pristine rivers and streams that sustain the world’s largest runs of sockeye salmon.

But right now, the mining industry is proposing to build a massive mine at the headwaters of Bristol Bay that would devastate brown bear and salmon habitat. The Pebble Mine would be almost a mile deep and produce billions of tons of toxic mine waste that could flow into waterways and poison wildlife.

Please edit and send the message below, urging the Environmental Protection Agency to protect the wildlife of Alaska’s Bristol Bay by stopping Pebble Mine.
