Help Protect The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

More than 27,000 Audubon supporters have sent public comments to oppose drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The deadline to comment is next Wednesday, March 13. Will you join them? It’s quick and easy.

Did you know that birds travel through all 50 states to raise their chicks in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge? No wonder some call it “America’s bird nursery.”

Unfortunately, the Bureau of Land Management has announced a plan to sell out the heart of the Arctic Refuge to oil companies, which will pave the way for drilling on the coastal plain of the Refuge—the nesting ground for vast numbers of birds such as Tundra Swans, American Golden-Plovers, and more.

This is especially disappointing since most of America’s Arctic coastline is already open for oil and gas development.

We need your help to protect this vital habitat from oil rigs, pipelines, and convoys of trucks and bulldozers that will roll over fragile tundra.
