After 50 years, it’s time to protect the Arctic Refuge for good!

This petition had 10,626 supporters

The Arctic is alive. In the summer, the Refuge breathes in life. Animals from near and far gather here, seeking refuge from a world of encroaching hazards to receive their most sacred needs: sustenance and safe harbor for bearing their young. In the winter, the Refuge exhales and Arctic life ventures out across the globe - enduring great travails until they return here once more to renew the cycle of life.   

On December 6, 2010, the Arctic Refuge will celebrate its 50th anniversary. The American people have successfully defended this last true wilderness refuge from Big Oil's attacks for 50 years. Now it is time to ask our leaders to support formal permanent Wilderness designation for the Coastal Plain of the Arctic Refuge by cosponsoring and supporting H.R. 39, the Udall-Eisenhower Arctic Wilderness Act.

Tell Washington to wake up: the American people have spoken. Let's finally protect the Arctic Refuge for good!
