Protect the Arctic Coast
The Trump administration unveiled a new management plan that, if adopted, will slash protections and open more than 80% of the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska to oil and gas operations. Please join us in taking action today.
Current protections for the Reserve allow some oil and gas operations while at the same time protecting important wildlife areas. But this new plan will make more than 80% of the Reserve available to the oil industry—even coastal habitat that is important to birds, fish and marine mammals.
The Reserve is the largest single tract of public land in the nation. Located in the United States Arctic, the Reserve is bounded by the Chukchi Sea to the west and the Beaufort Sea to the north. The Reserve is more than ten times the size of Yellowstone National Park and provides habitat for an astounding array of wildlife, including an abundance of marine mammals and seabirds. Indigenous residents of Alaska’s North Slope use areas within the Reserve to hunt, fish and gather subsistence resources.
Join us in championing for the Arctic by telling the Secretary of the Interior not to move forward with this proposed plan.
