Tell Congress to protect America's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of the world's most beautiful and unspoiled landscapes and is worthy of the strongest possible protection to ensure all Americans can use it for years to come. The Refuge is unique, majestic, irreplaceable and important. Caribou, muskoxen, wolves, nearly 200 species of migratory birds and polar bears call it home. For Alaska Natives, protecting the Arctic Refuge and the wildlife that depend on it is a human rights issue and a matter of survival.

Despite the Refuge's importance, Big Oil's allies in Congress want to drill in this special place. The Refuge is also ground zero for climate change's impact – over the past 40 years, Alaska has warmed twice as fast as the rest of the country.

Take action to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge once and for all!
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of the world’s most beautiful and unspoiled landscapes, and is worthy of the strongest possible protection to ensure all Americans can use it for years to come. Alaska Natives depend on the Arctic Refuge to preserve their way of life and have fought to protect it for time immemorial. The Refuge is one of our nation's most important spiritual and majestic places, with caribou, muskoxen, wolves, 160 species of migratory birds, and polar bears calling it home. It is a landscape created long before us by a greater power, and future generations are relying on us to protect this special place.

Despite the Refuge's importance to wildlife and people alike, oil companies have set their sights on drilling in this sensitive area for decades – a threat that has intensified as they go to greater lengths to find oil. The Refuge is ground zero for climate change impacts – over the past 40 years, Alaska has warmed twice as fast as the rest of the country. We can’t risk compounding this problem by adding drilling to the equation.
