Yeah it’s the holiday season and we’re all supposed to be thinking happy thoughts, but it’s time for a little reminder of the massive threat to Bristol Bay posed by the proposed Pebble Mine, from our friends at TU and Save Bristol Bay.
Save Bristol Bay
The biggest wild salmon fishery on the planet needs your help. As wild salmon disappear around the globe, Bristol Bay, Alaska continues to produce healthy runs of salmon which contribute well over $400 million a year to the US economy, employ thousands of Americans, and provide a healthy food source for people around the world. Unfortunately, North America’s largest open-pit mine, called Pebble, is proposed in an area that straddles two of the Bay’s most important salmon rivers. If plans for the Pebble Mine are allowed to proceed, the mine will destroy fish, fishing jobs, and the way of life for Bristol Bay locals.
