Tell the Bureau of Land Management: Protect Bristol Bay From Hard-Rock Mining

This petition had 7,373 supporters


Alaska's Bristol Bay is a place of bounty and balance. Its iconic and bountiful wild salmon have adapted to each individual stream feeding the bay, their cycles of ebb and flow continually self-regulating the species. A truly natural blessing!

But Bristol Bay is cursed with an abundance of another kind: several proposals for hard-rock mining are pending here, including the notorious Pebble Mine, which would be one of the world's largest gold and copper mines. Damaging even a few salmon streams with toxic mining runoff would disrupt the natural diversity and tip the balance of this treasured ecosystem.

Tell the Bureau of Land Management to protect Bristol Bay from the toxic threat of hard-rock mining.
