Today, President Obama permanently protected the offshore areas of Bristol Bay from oil&gas drilling and exploration. This is an important step in protecting the culture and fish-based jobs of this productive region, and an esteemed acknowledgement of the sustainable salmon resource that thrives in Bristol Bay.

We created this video with some pieces of testimony, but there is so much more we wanted to share with you. Over the next couple of weeks, we'll be featuring testimony from a number of Alaskan voices on what saving Bristol Bay means to them.

THANK YOU!

Your efforts - large and small - to help protect Southwest Alaska from the Pebble Mine proposal have made a big difference.

Together, we sent over 600,000 (and counting) comments to the EPA supporting Bristol Bay protections. Alaskans alone sent four times the number of comments than ever before.

On behalf of thousands of Bristol Bay residents who were ignored by the state of Alaska in this fight, thank you for taking action online, writing a letter, making a donation or telling a friend.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our giveaway activity during the EPA's comment period. Hundreds of you shared our images from the Save Bristol Bay facebook page and asked your networks to take action to help save Bristol Bay. Together, we sent hundreds of thousands of comments to the EPA supporting strong protections for Bristol Bay. This is HUGE!
Thank you very much for your dedicated support. We will keep you updated on any Bristol Bay news and next steps as we hear them!

Ahh, fall.

It's finally the time of year when we’re able to slow down from the hectic summer days, enjoy the colorful landscapes, and fish the rivers with a bit less of the summertime traffic.

This is it folks. This Friday marks the last and final opportunity to make sure its crystal clear that sportsmen and women want cool, clean, fish filled waters in Bristol Bay...not a giant mine. 
 
If you have not already done so, please take a minute to comment today and help protect the world’s greatest remaining wild sockeye salmon run.
