Protect America’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
This petition had 3,971 supporters
Alaska’s wild beauty is the envy of the rest of the country -- and nowhere is that more true than in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of the world’s most beautiful and unspoiled landscapes and is worthy of the strongest possible protection to ensure all Americans can use it for years to come. The Refuge is unique, majestic, irreplaceable and important. Caribou, muskoxen, wolves, nearly 200 species of migratory birds and polar bears call it home.
For Alaska Natives, protecting the Arctic Refuge and the wildlife that depend on it is a human rights issue and a matter of survival.
Despite the Refuge’s importance, Big Oil’s allies in Congress want to drill in this special place. The Refuge is also ground zero for climate change’s impact – over the past 40 years, Alaska has warmed twice as fast as the rest of the country.
Join us to tell Congress: To Alaskans, there’s no place like home. Protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge once, and for all!
