A foreign mining company and an Alaska economic development agency want the U.S. Department of Interior to approve a 200-mile private industrial mining road across pristine public lands in Alaska’s Brooks Range.
The proposed mining road would cut through the Gates of the Arctic National Preserve, harm one of the greatest caribou herds left on Earth, and bulldoze a route through nearly 3,000 streams. The project is opposed by many Alaska Native communities and Tribes in the region, who rely on the salmon, sheefish, and caribou.
Federal permits were pushed through in 2020, during the last days of the Trump Administration, but then suspended for additional review. Now, the Department of Interior is taking a more complex look.
Add your name to this petition and urge the Secretary of Interior to revoke the permits for the proposed Ambler mining road.
Families on the front lines of mining, drilling, and fracking urgently need allies in their fight for environmental justice. Can you help us give them the support they deserve and win the clean energy future all of us so desperately need?
