The effort to save Bristol Bay from the Pebble Mine has notched some wins recently, but we’re not done yet. Today we present to you a letter from our friends at Trout Unlimited asking for your financial support to help save Bristol Bay. We can’t think of a better cause.
Dear Bristol Bay Supporter,
The fight to protect Bristol Bay is far from over. With your help, we’ve built significant momentum to stop the massive Pebble mine, and we now have a unique opportunity to stop Pebble and protect Bristol Bay’s world-class fishing. But we need your help to win.
In a stunning announcement last month, international mining giant Anglo American said it was abandoning its claim to the Pebble deposit in order to pursue projects with less risk and more value. However, Northern Dynasty, the remaining partner in the Pebble Partnership, has indicated it still fully intends to pursue the Pebble project.
We must take advantage of the momentum we’ve gained, pushing harder than ever to safeguard Bristol Bay.
We won’t be able to do this without your support. And right now, your donation will be doubled through a matching gift from an anonymous supporter. This enables us to do more good work for Bristol Bay’s fish and people.
Your donation will help protect one of America’s best places to fish. You will help sustain the things that make Alaska so great for future generations to enjoy: clean water, local renewable resource based jobs, and epic fishing.
