Tell the Trump administration: No seismic surveys in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
Docket No. FWS-R7-ES-2020-0129
I oppose seismic surveys in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, which will harm polar bears and lead to further environmental destruction by oil and gas companies.
Seismic surveys are a terrifying threat to polar bears, who build dens in the ice of the coastal plain to give birth and nurse their young. The IHA proposal says that polar bears have a 21 percent chance of getting killed or injured during the surveys -- and this 1 in 5 threat of slaughtering an endangered species is far too high.
The Arctic Refuge is one of the last wild places in the U.S., and it's home to the Porcupine caribou herd, migratory birds, and hundreds of other incredible species. We can't trade in this special place for a little more oil.
