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.

      La Agencia de Protección del Medio Ambiente ha confirmado que la mina Pebble conlleva un riesgo catastrófico para la Bahía de Bristol. Pero a pesar de las advertencias, Northern Dynasty Minerals de Canadá es imprudente sigue adelante con este mega-mina de 6000 millones dólares.

      Oh, come on, stop this. Stop caving in to greed. Bristol Bay is of far greater value as a glorious wilderness than it can ever be once defaced and stripped bare after mining. It's worth more to me, to the people of the world and to the Earth itself, as a pristine, biodiverse, soul-healing wilderness.

      Stop letting a few profiteers vandalize our irreplaceable, magnificent open places for personal gain. It's really a sin against Humanity, the Earth and God to permit the Pebble mine to go forward. Stop the Pebble Mine project NOW.
