Help save one of America's greatest natural treasures

    1. Sponsored by

      Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)

The proposed Pebble Mine in Alaska's Bristol Bay wilderness may be the worst corporate assault on America’s natural heritage that no one’s ever heard of.

Bristol Bay's untamed wilderness is home to the greatest wild sockeye salmon runs on the planet, an astounding diversity of wildlife, and a way of life for Native communities that have thrived there for thousands of years.

But a Canadian mining company wants to carve a gargantuan open-pit, gold and copper mine out of the heart of this American Eden. 

The Environmental Protection Agency has confirmed that the Pebble Mine carries catastrophic risk for Bristol Bay. But despite the warnings, Canada's Northern Dynasty Minerals is recklessly pushing ahead with this $6 billion mega-mine.

Send an urgent message to Northern Dynasty's president telling him to abandon plans for the disastrous Pebble Mine.

NRDC has been fighting to block the Pebble Mine for years. And thanks to people like you, we've been able to help pressure two global mining giants to withdraw their support for it. Northern Dynasty Minerals is the last holdout. They can be stopped, but only with your help.

      Stewardship, in the Christian tradition, implies protection. Man should exist in harmony with the earth, not work against it as is noted in Colossians 1:16-17

      Our open land is disappearing at an alarming rate. The land that remains must be protected, including Alaska's Bristol Bay.

      It is no longer to acceptable or viable to keep taking for profit from our environment. Please avoid environmental degradation from industrial activity. Logging on fragile post-fire soils inhibits and damages natural growth and recovery.

      Forests are an important part of our fragile ecosystem, for humanity as well as for animals and creatures that have no voice but are in danger and losing their habitat, their lives.

      Please don't forfeit the long term eco-system of so many, for the short term benefit of so few. We must care for this amazing place we call home. Logging is such a destructive and short term money grab.

      Protect Beautiful Tress, Protect beautiful Animals!

      "Man will be surprised to find where animals fit in. All that is done is recorded & foolish people think the harm they've done to animals will not count. It will! All that the Creator's made is not to be taken lightly." -from The Watchers II by Raymond Fowler

      It is no longer to acceptable or viable to keep taking for profit from our environment.

      More and more people no longer tolerate practices with zero integrity and zero compassion.

      Our One Earth is not ours to destroy; nor is it a rock we have the right to bleed dry of its resources for our own gain and eventual self-destruction.

      It is OUR responsibility as citizens everywhere in world to protect OUR planet. It is our responsibility to help protect the environment, the innocent & defenseless wild life and, we must each understand that it's also our future that is in danger!

      As documented in Jared Diamond's book 'Collapse,' every civilization that forgot its trees began a cascade of life support failures, and ultimately disappeared. Those who remembered and cherished their trees and reversed the trend, saved themselves."

      "Only when the last tree has been cut down; Only when the last river has been poisoned; Only when the last fish has been caught; Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten." (Native American proverb)

      STOP DEVASTATING OUR GLORIOUS EARTH NOW!
