DILLINGHAM, AK – Today, the Bristol Bay region met the Pebble Limited Partnership’s long-delayed federal permit applications with skepticism and renewed determination as Northern Dynasty continues to move forward with a mine Alaskans don’t want.
“There is a long history of investors walking away from the proposed Pebble Mine -- and for good reason. It is an ill-conceived, shortsighted project that flies in the face of local people, American jobs, businesses, a majority of Alaskans and millions of hunters and anglers. This widespread and unwavering opposition, on top of numerous other concerns, has long made Pebble a risky investment.
ANCHORAGE, AK – By internal count, the Environmental Protection Agency received more than 750,000 comments supporting the federal agency’s proposed protections for Bristol Bay, Alaska from threats posed by the Pebble Mine.
To Alaskan audiences, Pebble says they have listened to our concerns and are now proposing a "smaller mine" with less impact to the fishery. Don’t be fooled by their lies. Because meanwhile, in attempts to attract investors, their OWN WEBSITE says the truth:
Over a 40-year career commercial fishing in Alaska, I’ve experienced a few occasions in which I knew I was amid something very rare and very special. The Sockeye return to Bristol Bay this past summer created one of those exceptional moments in time.
Today, salmon lovers across the country can order sockeye salmon from Pride of Bristol Bay and have it delivered directly to homes and businesses across the country. A portion of proceeds from every order placed will go directly to efforts to protect Bristol Bay from the Pebble Mine proposal.
