Thank you for your interest in taking this action. This campaign is now closed. 

Unfortunately, despite the 22,083 letters that WWF activists sent to the secretary of the interior, the Minerals Management Service went ahead with its plan to open bids on February 6, 2008.  The Service opened $2.6 billion in winning bids by companies that want to drill for oil and gas in the Chukchi Sea.
