Alaska's Bristol Bay sockeye salmon run is the largest wild sockeye salmon run in the world. It is the lifeblood of the Bristol Bay region and Lake Clark National Park and Preserve.

Three years ago, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determined that the proposed Pebble Mine would devastate the Bristol Bay region’s salmon, and the agency placed strict limits on the project. But now, after months of lobbying by the foreign corporation that owns the mine, the Trump administration has struck a deal that could erase the protections EPA put in place to safeguard this incredibly special place and the people and wildlife that depend on it.

Tell EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt that Bristol Bay’s wild salmon, wildlife, people and national park all are connected and must be protected. Please personalize your message below by sharing your thoughts and experiences exploring the Bristol Bay region or enjoying Alaska wild salmon.


Don't gamble with wild salmon and our national parks!

Dear [Decision Maker],

The remarkable economic, community and cultural values of the wild salmon fishery are essential to Bristol Bay and Lake Clark National Park. I urge you not to withdraw the proposed Clean Water Act determination the EPA made in 2014 and keep your agency's promise to protect Bristol Bay's economy, people and wildlife. Please do not allow Pebble Mine development to move forward.

Thank you for considering my comments.
