Friend-

President Trump is betting on a distracted public to overlook his decision to hand over the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to oil companies. The United States’ greatest protected area — home to the imperiled polar bears, Porcupine caribou herd, musk oxen, wolves, owls, and nearly 200 species of migratory birds — could be transformed forever.

This is why we are joining a nationwide coalition effort to send more than a million public comments to the Department of Interior in opposition to holding an oil and gas lease sale in the Arctic Refuge.

Submit your comment today in opposition to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The deadline to submit comments is June 19!

We have been here before. For the past 20 years, oil companies have sought to drill in the Arctic Refuge. And every time, people like you have spoken out and defeated their efforts.

Now we’re called upon to speak out once more! A recent poll shows that the vast majority of the American people oppose oil drilling in the Arctic Refuge.[1] Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska promised a robust review process, including opportunities for public input and tribal consultation. We can hold her to her promise and win this battle if you help rally formidable opposition.

Trump, Murkowski, and the oil industry are depending on circumventing normal processes to drill ANWR. They already used a provision in the tax bill to open the Refuge to oil drilling without Congressional debate nor input from the American people. That is why it is so vital to act now to demonstrate your opposition to oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

This is about more than protecting Arctic wildlife. It is about our solidarity with the Gwich’in people fighting to protect what they call “The Sacred Place Where Life Begins” because of its critical role as the calving ground for the caribou, on which the Gwich’in depend for food and cultural survival. And it is about our commitment to stop oil infrastructure like drilling rigs and pipelines. Only then can we keep fossil fuels in the ground where they cannot be burnt and threaten our climate.

Demand ANWR stay protected right now!
