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.
  

It's giveaway time!

We want to encourage as many of you to take action to protect Bristol Bay as possible, and luckily, so do our friends at Patagonia.

Patagonia San Francisco has generously donated two jackets to the Save Bristol Bay cause!

Here's how to get one for free:log on to Facebook and share the #giveaway post (pictured below) with your friends.

TU has asked you time and again to comment in order to protect a place that few people from the Lower 48 have had the opportunity to see for themselves. We’ve asked you to take our word for the fact that Bristol Bay is a beautiful, unique, thriving fishery. (In fact, please take action now if you have not already!) Dan Michels, a longtime lodge owner, guide and pilot out of King Salmon wanted to give the opportunity for someone to see it for him or herself.
