We, the undersigned, urge you to protect 13 million acres of “special areas” in the Western Arctic landscape from oil and gas drilling. Wildlife love this place. It’s one of the few places on the planet that has been spared from human interference. Undisturbed, beluga whales, migratory birds, moose and caribou all thrive.
Drilling would permanently scar this critical wildlife habitat. The breeding grounds for migratory birds, caribou and more would be replaced with gaping holes in the earth, thundering trucks and pipelines. Not to mention the air, water and climate pollution that goes hand in hand with oil drilling.
We can’t let even more drilling spoil the Arctic. Please protect the most important places in the Western Arctic from oil and gas drilling.
