Tell the EPA to Permanently Veto the Pebble Mine and Save Bristol Bay

The Army Corps’ decision to reject the disastrous Pebble Mine project is a promising victory in the fight to save Alaska’s Bristol Bay – but it’s a temporary one. The owner of the project has 90 days to respond with a new plan that addresses the Army Corps’ concerns. And they will respond.

This proposed open-pit gold and copper mega-mine would produce 10 billion tons of mining waste that would threaten the Indigenous People and ecosystems that depend on the bay’s abundant wildlife, and it would exacerbate our climate crisis by emitting millions of tons of greenhouse gases.

We need a permanent solution. Tell the EPA to veto the Pebble Mine project once and for all and save Bristol Bay.
