The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is home to some of the planet's most spectacular wildlife. Under the direction of President Trump's Secretary of Interior, the Bureau of Land Management has issued a draft environmental impact assessment for oil and gas leasing in the Coastal Plain. The assessment is being fast-tracked, as the administration wants to accelerate the drilling process.
Drilling in this national natural treasure will disturb wildlife, destroy tundra and wetland habitat, and bring noise in the form of aviation and ground traffic; and marine life will be impacted by the construction of landing docks and ship traffic carrying drilling equipment.
Sign our urgent letter to the Bureau of Land Management today and help us protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
