Stop Shell Oil's Offshore Drilling Plans In The Arctic

    1. Sponsored by

      The Wilderness Society

What would be the cost if an oil spill occurred in Arctic Alaska, home to thousands of whales - belugas, gray and bowhead, and endangered fin and humpback whales? What cost to polar bears, their habitat already melting due to global warming? What cost to almost all the Pacific walrus that inhabits these waters?

Shell Oil plans to send ships within weeks to start exploratory drilling there. And the Gulf drilling disaster has shown us that there is no fail-safe way to drill for oil offshore.

Fill out the form to the right to take action today. Tell Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to block Shell Oil's drilling plans before it's too late. His safety review is due out by May 28th, so we still have a small window of time to influence his decision!
