Protect Alaska's Bristol Bay From Pebble Mine

President Trump and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt recently struck a backroom deal with a foreign mining company that wants to build an open-pit mine near some of our nation's most precious waters in Bristol Bay, Alaska. The announcement to even consider such a mine marks a sharp reversal to existing plans to protect the area. Over the past decade, activists and fisherman have been working to secure safeguards for Bristol Bay and its wildlife.

The Bristol Bay watershed is home to a pristine ecosystem and the largest sockeye salmon fishery in the world. It supports 14,000 jobs in commercial fishing and outdoor recreation -- and for generations Alaska Natives have fished and hunted here.

Using the form on this page, tell the EPA to stick to its original plan to protect Bristol Bay and reject this mine proposal.

Please take action by July 12, 2017.
