The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is recklessly fast-tracking the destructive Pebble Mine — a catastrophic gold and copper mega-mine that could destroy Alaska’s spectacular Bristol Bay wilderness and it’s wildlife.
If opened, the Pebble Mine could produce billions of tons of mining waste, directly endangering streams that produce half the world's sockeye salmon, becoming a threat to the Native peoples and wildlife like brown bears and bald eagles that depend on those fish.
And yet the Army Corps of Engineers just released a flawed, hastily-produced draft environmental impact study that ignores devastating impacts the project could have on local communities, economies, wildlife, and the environment.
Tell the Army Corps of Engineers that you oppose the Pebble Mine before the public comment periods ends on July 1.
