The federal government rejected permits for a proposed massive sulfide-ore copper mine adjacent to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota.
But while one mine was denied, others may come. The Boundary Waters is not fully protected from mining and industrial activity. A mining spill or other industrial disaster would devastate the wilderness that vulnerable wildlife depend on.
We’ve taken so much habitat away from wildlife like moose, we owe it to these species to defend what’s left of public wildernesses like Boundary Waters.
Urge your members of Congress to support continued protection of the 1.1 million acre Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness from toxic mining.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from National Wildlife Federation and National Wildlife Federation Action Fund.
