We, the undersigned, urge Chevron to abandon any and all plans to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The Arctic Refuge is a special place, home to polar bears, caribou, wolves, and millions of migratory birds, among other wildlife. And, due to this abundance of wildlife, for thousands of years the native Gwich’in people have depended on this biological jewel for survival, with a culture centered around the caribou herd.

Drilling and development in the Arctic Refuge threatens both wildlife and the native Gwich’in people. It is too special and sacred a place to ruin.
