I’m sure you’ve heard about the incredible fishing season we’re having in Bristol Bay this year. We’re on track to harvest a record number of salmon returning to this pristine region as they have for generations. Simply put, Bristol Bay, Alaska is home to one of the last great salmon fisheries on the planet and it’s up to us to ensure it stays that way. Maybe you’re thinking…haven’t we already done that? Unfortunately not yet.
The EPA is now working to erase the critical protections we have already supported for Bristol Bay time and time again. Just this week, an official EPA comment period has opened and they need to hear from you.
The salmon, wildlife, people, and jobs of Bristol Bay are STILL threatened by the proposed Pebble gold and copper mine. The EPA needs to hear again that hundreds of thousands of people across America STILL support protections for wild salmon in Bristol Bay.
