Help stop Shell Oil's disastrous plans to drill for oil in the Arctic


Shell Oil is lobbying the government and spending millions of dollars marketing to the public so they can drill “guilt-free” in the Arctic's Beaufort Sea. The proposed oil drilling location is twelve miles off the coast of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in an area designated as critical habitat for the threatened polar bear that also serves as vital feeding and migration grounds for the endangered bowhead whale.

The government is asking for public comment on Shell’s oil drilling plans. Take action by telling Secretary Salazar's Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement that you won’t stand by and let the Arctic become the next victim of Big Oil's limitless greed. Please speak-up for the Arctic wildlife and help prevent another disastrous oil spill.
