What's At Stake
The world’s greatest sockeye salmon run is in Bristol Bay, Alaska. Now, after more than a decade of advocacy by Tribes, local residents, fishers, environmental organizations, businesses, and many others, the Environmental Protection Agency has moved to protect these pristine waters from a plan to build a huge, polluting mine.
There is a good chance that Pebble Mine’s backers will try to challenge the EPA’s actions in court. If they do, they will be violating the wishes of most Alaskans: Two out of three oppose the mine and support these protections.
Earthjustice is committed to stopping the exploitation and destruction of Earth’s most irreplaceable lands and waters, including all those on public lands. We are in this fight for the long haul.
