Sign the petition to protect Alaska's Bristol Bay from an open pit gold mine

Alaska’s Bristol Bay watershed supports the world’s largest remaining wild salmon fishery.
Year after year, the salmon return to Bristol Bay in astounding numbers, like no other place on earth. The fishery supports an abundance of bears, whales, eagles and sustains the Alaska Native communities that rely on the salmon as their primary source of food.
Unfortunately, the Pebble Mine proposal threatens Bristol Bay.
The mine is projected to be the largest in North America, generating as much as 10 billion tons of toxic mine waste and destroying salmon habitat.
Fortunately, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has authority under the Clean Water Act to restrict mine waste dumping in the pristine waters and wetlands of the Bristol Bay watershed. And they're deciding soon whether to use it.
