Protect Bristol Bay From Environmentally Destructive Copper and Gold Mine

Target: Michael S. Regan, Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Goal: Prevent the approval of Pebble Mine and protect the pristine Bristol Bay ecosystem.

The Bristol Bay region, situated in Alaska, is undoubtedly one of the planet’s most crucial ecological treasures. Its pristine landscapes and rich biodiversity are emblematic of the untamed beauty that nature has to offer. However, the very essence of this extraordinary environment faces an alarming and imminent threat in the form of the proposed Pebble Mine project.

The Pebble Mine project, if allowed to proceed, would bring about the excavation of one of the world’s largest open-pit copper and gold mines within this pristine region. The ramifications of such an endeavor are profound. It would not only scar the untouched wilderness, but also pose a significant risk to the sensitive aquatic ecosystems that thrive in Bristol Bay. The potential for habitat destruction, water pollution, and irreversible damage to the fragile balance of this ecosystem is immense.

The Bristol Bay watershed is a haven for wildlife, including the world’s largest sockeye salmon run, which supports numerous communities and ecosystems. Pebble Mine’s potential environmental consequences are immense, with the risk of habitat destruction, pollution, and irreversible damage to this unique ecosystem.

Sign the petition below to demand that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) takes resolute action to deny the permits required for the Pebble Mine project and safeguard Bristol Bay for present and future generations.


Dear Mr. Regan,

We urge you to exercise your authority and reject the permits necessary for the proposed Pebble Mine project in Bristol Bay, Alaska. This iconic region is a global ecological treasure, home to invaluable wildlife and the world’s most prolific sockeye salmon fishery. The potential environmental harm posed by the mine is incalculable, with devastating repercussions for the local communities that depend on this fragile ecosystem.

To safeguard this irreplaceable ecological treasure, it is imperative that we raise our voices and take decisive action against the Pebble Mine project. The fate of Bristol Bay hangs in the balance, and we must act swiftly to protect it for present and future generations.

We implore you to prioritize the preservation of Bristol Bay’s unique and irreplaceable natural heritage. Protect this vital watershed, its wildlife, and the livelihoods it sustains by taking a firm stance against Pebble Mine.
