The Pebble Mine is a threat to salmon

The Pebble Mine is a threat to salmon

A massive gold and copper mine - the Pebble Mine - is proposed for development at the headwaters of 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.
EPA Study is out: Long term risks to world’s greatest wild salmon fishery!
The EPA has just completed a watershed assessment on the suitability of large-scale mining in Alaska’s Bristol Bay – home to the world’s largest wild salmon fishery. Just as we suspected -- the long-term risks to the fishery are significant!
Urge the EPA to Take the Next Step to Protect Bristol Bay!
The EPA has the authority under 404c of the Clean Water Act to prohibit the disposal of mine waste in the pristine waters of the Bristol Bay watershed if the science indicates that the fishery is at risk.
TAKE ACTION: Urge the EPA to take the next step and initiate the 404c process to protect the world’s greatest wild salmon fishery!
