Reject the Pebble Mine And Save World-Class Salmon Runs

This petition had 41,910 supporters

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently concluded that Pebble Mine would cause significant, potentially “catastrophic” consequences for the incomparable salmon and wildlife of the region.

If approved, Pebble would be the largest, most destructive open pit mine in North America. Over its lifetime, the mine could generate 23 billion tons of dangerous mining waste, wiping out over 90 miles of salmon streams and more than 5,000 acres of intertwined wetlands, ponds, and lakes. 

We have a powerful opportunity to stop this mega-mine from devastating Alaska’s Bristol Bay – home to abundant wildlife and world-class salmon runs, including the Earth’s largest sockeye fishery. 

The science is in, the danger is clear — and now the EPA can use its authority under the Clean Water Act to stop the Pebble Mine and protect Bristol Bay.

Help us fight back to save Alaskan wilderness. Tell the Obama administration to stop the Pebble Mine.
