Stop the Pebble Mine

Tell Your Friends

Now’s our chance to permanently put a stop to the dangerous Pebble Mine and we need to rally support from people across the country before the EPA public comment period ends.

The Nature Conservancy is calling on the EPA to use its authority to stop the proposed open-pit Pebble Mine because it would irreparably damage the salmon, lands, waters and communities in Alaska’s Bristol Bay.

For decades, Tribes in Bristol Bay have asked the EPA to use its authority under section 404(c) of the Clean Water Act to protect Bristol Bay’s unique resources and put in place robust science-based protections. Now is the time to demonstrate our unified and overwhelming opposition to the destructive Pebble Mine and support the Tribes, businesses, wildlife, and communities that depend on the national treasure that is Bristol Bay.

Countless scientific assessments have shown that the proposed large-scale open-pit Pebble Mine would be devastating to the region. Pebble Mine’s development would destroy thousands of acres of wetlands, irreversibly damage one of the world’s last great wild salmon runs, and harm Indigenous communities who have relied on these salmon for thousands of years.

Help us call for an end to the proposed Pebble Mine’s development now.

We have only a short window of time to tell the EPA to forever stop the Pebble Mine from harming the lands and waters of Bristol Bay. Add your name now and we’ll deliver it with our official recommendation to the EPA Administrator.

EPA: It’s Time to Protect Bristol Bay

There is overwhelming evidence of the toxic pollution and environmental harm the proposed Pebble Mine will cause if developed. It will irrevocably jeopardize the $2.2 billion annual salmon fishery that provides 15,000 jobs and supplies 50% of the world’s sockeye salmon. But the Bristol Bay watershed is more than an economic engine and a national treasure — it is also the lifeline for the people of Bristol Bay and all those who depend on it.

Large-scale open-pit mining in Alaska’s Bristol Bay would permanently damage this unique and irreplaceable landscape. Years of robust scientific study show that this is the wrong mine in the wrong place — and that now is the time to protect this unique region from the threat of the Pebble Mine.

I’m adding my name to The Nature Conservancy’s call for the EPA to use its authority under section 404(c) of the Clean Water Act to stop the proposed open-pit Pebble Mine because it would irreparably damage the salmon, lands, waters and communities in Bristol Bay.
