More than 35 Alaskan lodge owners, operators, and guides from Bristol Bay and elsewhere requested the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers suspend its review of Pebble's phase-one mine plan application until further critical information is provided.
Trout Unlimited has been working with fishermen, tribes, chefs, and thousands of others who, together, are fighting to protect the Bristol Bay region of Alaska from the proposed Pebble Mine.
As salmon runs decline globally, Bristol Bay's importance is elevated - not only as a powerhouse for wild salmon, but also the engine for local and international economies, and a world-class sportfishing destination.
Trout Unlimited's Bristol Bay Ambassadors program highlights the people who help in the fight to save Bristol Bay from Pebble Mine. As we said at the launch, "For every person we highlight, we know there are hundreds more, doing their part because they care about Bristol Bay." If you know someone who should be featured, please send us an email at jweis [at] tu [dot] org.
Martin Kviteng is a business owner who sent us the mock up of his new cessna, and we couldn't resist the opportunity to feature one of our many awesome business partners. Thanks, Martin!
The rain-laden wind whipped my face. My hands, gripping a steaming mug of tea were ice. My three-year old, with his face buried in my chest, giggled with uncontrollable glee as my husband sped the boat around a bend toward the lake.
