Protect the Western Arctic Reserve From Big Oil

The Western Arctic Reserve, also known as the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, is our nation’s largest single unit of public land. It supports some of America's most iconic species threatened and endangered species. Within the Reserve is Peard Bay, a nesting area for the endangered Spectacled Eider.

Polar and brown bears, walrus, beluga whales, caribou and millions of migratory birds call the Reserve home. For the first time ever, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar is considering a new management plan for the Reserve that protects key habitat areas from oil and gas development.

Urge Secretary Salazar to protect special areas within the Reserve for future generations by signing our petition to him asking that he adopt "Alternative B" that would protect sensitive habitat for generations to come.
