We need YOU to help stop Pebble

Does the idea of Bristol Bay's rivers - the ones that support last intact wild salmon powerhouse in North America -  being poisoned by toxins leaking from a massive tailings dam make you extremely angry?

Does the thought that younger generations of Alaska Natives, whose ancestors have fished wild salmon in Bristol Bay for generations, might be unable to do so because of Pebble make you want to cry?

Would you think differently about traveling to Bristol Bay to go fishing if the sound heavy machinery could be heard across the valleys and down the formerly quiet rivers? Would you decide not to go at all if there would be constant helicopter traffic overhead and roads being constructed over and around world-renown fishing rivers?

Then we need you to act.

Would your livelihood as a commercial fisherman or sportfishing guide (or anyone who depends on the clean rivers and wild landscape of Bristol Bay) be jeopardized if Pebble Mine moves forward?

Here is a list of how you can make a difference today in the fight to save Bristol Bay from Pebble Mine.

  1. If you live in Alaska: Contact Governor Walker and tell him we STILL oppose Pebble. Ask him to do everything in his power to protect the fishery and thousands of jobs it sustains.
  2. If you live in the Lower 48: Send an email to the new Administrator of the EPA, Scott Pruitt. Tell him that Bristol Bay is too special to be put at risk by foreign-owned Pebble Mine, and our economy in Bristol Bay is healthy and revolves around wild salmon and clean water.
  3. Make a donation: Our team employs a dedicated staff of policy experts, scientists, organizers and communicators. We are passionate about ensuring Bristol Bay receives the protections it deserves, but it takes a lot of time, expertise and money to keep this effort underway. Click here to donate today.
  4. Call members of congress: Tell them that you are concerned about Pebble Mine and ask them to do everything in their power to protect Bristol Bay. The capitol switchboard is: 202-224-3121. The person on the line can connect you to any office.
  5. Write a letter to the editor or opinion article for your local newspaper. We are always more than happy to help with this! The best letters are the ones that answer the question: Why do you care about Bristol Bay? 
  6. Host a screening of Red Gold and collect comment cards. Contact us to get started!
