Over the last two weeks, NRDC ran a series of hard-hitting, full-page print ads in Washington urging the Pebble Partnership -- Northern Dynasty's legal entity -- to walk away from Pebble Mine. The EPA has confirmed that this gargantuan open-pit, gold and copper operation -- along with its estimated 10 billion tons of toxic mining waste -- carries catastrophic risk for Bristol Bay, its world-class salmon fishery, its pristine environment and its people.
The EPA has already proposed regulations for the Bristol Bay wilderness that would block this ill-conceived mega-mine. And hundreds of thousands of NRDC members and activists have written to EPA urging the agency to follow through with these proposed restrictions.
But the Pebble Partnership has stalled the process by filing multiple lawsuits against EPA, trying to tie its hands in court.
Please do your part to keep the pressure on by sending an urgent message to the Pebble Partnership right now -- and save one of our last and greatest wild places from destruction. Click Here to send your message to the Pebble Partnership.
Thank you for standing with us. We wouldn't be here without your strong support.
