The long-fought battle to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge — our nation’s greatest wildlife sanctuary — is heating up on Capitol Hill. The House of Representatives passed a bill that would block the Trump administration’s disastrous plan to allow destructive oil exploration and drilling in the Arctic Refuge and restore protections to this pristine wild place. Now a companion bill has been introduced in the Senate that would create new protections for the Refuge and help safeguard it from industrial harm.
With the Trump administration preparing to start taking bids from oil companies in a matter of months, legislation is the only surefire way to protect the Arctic Refuge permanently from fossil fuel development. We need your help to mobilize massive public pressure on every senator to support this critical bill. Take action: Urge your senators to support the Arctic Refuge Protection Act!
