President Obama: Address the Keystone XL Pipeline's Impact on Caribou Habitats

    1. Sponsored by

      National Wildlife Federation Action Fund

For the third time, the U.S. State Department has issued an environmental review of the proposed Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline, and once again, they got it dead wrong.

If Big Oil gets its way, the Keystone XL pipeline would drive the expansion of tar sands oil in Canada, which is pushing already threatened caribou herds towards extinction as more and more of their dwindling forest habitat is destroyed.

Now, it’s up to us to send a signal to the Obama administration they can’t ignore. The 45 day public comment period has started, and your voice is needed to keep up the fight for caribou and many more wildlife at risk from this catastrophic project.

Speak up for caribou today! Sign our petition urging the Obama administration to address the Keystone XL pipeline's impacts on wildlife, habitat and climate change.

      "Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is symbolic as well as actual beauty in the migration of the birds, the ebb and flow of the tides, the folded bud ready for the spring. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature - the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter." -- Rachel Carson

      The most alarming of all man's assaults upon the environment is the contamination of air, earth, rivers, and sea with dangerous and even lethal materials. This pollution is for the most part irrecoverable; the chain of evil it initiates not only in the world that must support life but in living tissues is for the most part irreversible. In this now universal contamination of the environment, chemicals are the sinister and little-recognized partners of radiation in changing the very nature of the world--the very nature of its life. ~ Rachel Carson

      Reject it; it is NOT in our interests.
