Help Natives, Salmon, & Rivers – Stop Dirty Gold Mine

Trump and EPA head Pruitt just reversed the protection of Alaska’s Bristol Bay salmon rivers.  Please write your politicians and letters to the editor to protest this.  Pruitt is approving a  mine that will produce 10 million tons of mining waste at the headwaters of the watershed.  Native-Americans, Alaskans,  fishermen, and enviros oppose the Pebble mine.

“Bristol Bay is a critical wild salmon fishery, providing 46 percent of the world’s supply of wild sockeye salmon, according to the NRDC. Its fishery is worth $1.5 billion a year, and it provides habitat for 29 fish species, 40 terrestrial mammal species, and 190 bird species.”
