Stop Pebble Mine

Thank you to Patagonia’s newsletter this morning highlighting the Pebble Mine

Right now, one of our most valuable freshwater habitats is at risk.

The largest sockeye and king salmon runs on earth each year fill Bristol Bay in southwest Alaska. But development of the Pebble Mine could transform this wild place overnight.The open-pit mine complex, the size of Manhattan, would yield a mother lode of copper, gold and molybdenum. It would also unearth billions of tons of heavy metals and toxic materials, which could find their way into local waters, threatening tens of millions of Bristol Bay salmon and the people of the region who depend on them.

More than three quarters of Bristol Bay-area residents oppose the Pebble Mine. We’re joining Trout Unlimited and a broad coalition of fishermen, native communities, conservation groups, and private companies to fight it

Trout Unlimited’s Alaska Program works to preserve, protect and restore wild salmon and trout populations throughout Alaska. Through sound scientific data, strong grassroots outreach and advocacy, and hands-on involvement in conservation projects we protect some of the most pristine and prized rivers on the planet, restore those that need some help, and engage the next generation of coldwater stewards in Alaska’s natural heritage.
