Urge Secretary Jewell to Finalize and Adopt the Decision to Protect Izembek National Wildlife Refuge!


The Department of the Interior has stated that it would prefer to deny the request to build a road through the remote wilderness areas of Alaska’s Izembek National Wildlife Refuge.

The Izembek National Wildlife Refuge is internationally recognized for its important wetlands and wildlife habitat, and as congressionally designated Wilderness.  

This decision now goes to the Secretary of the Interior to be finalized -- Tell Secretary Jewell that you stand behind the Fish and Wildlife Service’s decision, and urge her to finalize and adopt the agency’s decision to deny this proposed road.
