This month, we have the first formal chance to weigh in on Pebble's latest mine plan to help ensure the proposed Pebble mine doesn’t become a reality and irreparably harm the Bristol Bay region of Alaska.
In December, the Pebble Partnership applied for the first major permit it needs to construct a mine. That application is huge news because it brought Pebble one step closer to industrializing the wild and productive landscape in Bristol Bay.

The Corps of Engineers has just opened its first public comment period, where it is accepting input on what it should consider as it reviews potential impacts of Pebble’s proposed mine plan. Pebble's plan would be catastrophic to the fish and waters we all love in Bristol Bay, and we need you to help make sure the Corps of Engineers holds Pebble to the highest standards possible. Learn more about what Pebble's proposing in their latest mine plan here.
Please take a moment to tell the Army Corps of Engineers that Pebble’s plan is inadequate, and they need to conduct a rigorous, scientific and public review of ALL potential impacts of Pebble mine.
The Corps of Engineers needs to allow all stakeholders - anyone who lives, owns a business, fishes, or one day hopes to fish in Bristol Bay - to weigh in on issues Pebble could impact, like water quality, fisheries, scenery, economies, cultures, and airways of the Bristol Bay region, Cook Inlet, and impacted areas of the Kenai Peninsula.
We should celebrate that there is no mine in Bristol Bay yet. Without the fierce and widespread opposition to this project, that might not be the case. But now is not the time to sit back and rest – it is time to double down. Let’s regather our gumption, tap into the vast network of passion and angler ingenuity, and lean headfirst into this fight for what we love.
We will continue to advance our plans to ensure Bristol Bay remains the wild, productive landscape it is, and never becomes an industrial mining district. You are an important part of that team.
Thank you for speaking up, and for sharing this action link with your friends and contacts. The fish, clean water, businesses, and residents of Bristol Bay are immensely grateful for your help.
