The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is recklessly attempting to fast-track the permitting process for the Pebble Mine — a catastrophic gold and copper mega-mine that could destroy Alaska’s Bristol Bay wilderness for decades to come.
If built, the Pebble Mine could produce billions of tons of mining waste, directly endangering streams that produce half the world's sockeye salmon, as well as Native peoples and wildlife like brown bears and bald eagles that depend on those fish.
Pebble’s permit application lacks important detail, substantive information, and environmental baseline data. And it has not shown that the project is economically viable.
But the Army Corps is ignoring these deficiencies and hundreds of thousands of letters they've received in opposition to the toxic mega-mine. So we must keep the pressure on.
Urge the Army Corps to suspend and reject the permit for the project to save Bristol Bay wilderness.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is recklessly attempting to fast-track the destructive Pebble Mine. Tell the Army Corps that you oppose this toxic mega-mine, and urge them to stop it.
