Protect Loons From Mercury Poisoning
Common Loons and their young in the wild North are in jeopardy from toxic mercury pollution that contaminates the freshwater fish on which they depend.
Right now, we have the chance to protect loons, fish and other wildlife from toxic mercury pollution because the Environmental Protection Agency is deciding whether to limit mercury pollution from coal-burning power plants.
Speak up for the Common Loon. Urge the Environmental Protection Agency to set strong limits on mercury pollution from coal-burning power plants today!

Dear [Decision Maker],
I strongly support the new Mercury and Air Toxics Standards that would limit mercury, arsenic, dioxin, and other toxic emissions from power plants.

Coal-fired power plants are the single largest source of mercury contamination in the U.S, amounting to about 50 percent of emissions affecting humans and wildlife.
For too long, mercury and other toxic pollution has gone unchecked in America. It is time that we require power plants to clean up the pollution that is inflicting such devastating damage to our health and environment.
I urge you to move forward and finalize strong Mercury and Air Toxics standards. These pollution limits will be one of the largest steps forward in protecting our nation from toxic air pollution in a generation.
