YOU CAN HELP PROTECT BRISTOL BAY.
In December 2017, the Pebble Limited Partnership applied for the major federal permit (a dredge and fill permit) needed to mine in Bristol Bay. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is the lead federal agency responsible for reviewing the permit application, and recently published their Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). The DEIS is a report that is meant to look at the mine’s potential impacts to the natural environment and people of the region. However, the draft is not only inadequate but the environmental review process is being rushed to come to a final permit decision before the end of the Trump administration.
We’re now asking Senator Lisa Murkowski (Alaska’s senior senator, who holds a key oversight role) to help stop this process. She has a long history of calling for science-based decision making, and the Army Corps review is clearly politically-motivated and ignoring the sound science that tells us Pebble cannot coexisit with our fishery and all it sustains.
And QUYANA and CHIN’AN to everyone who commented on the DEIS recently! Your voices are critical to stopping Pebble.
