BREAKING NEWS ON BRISTOL BAY – THE MOMENT WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR!
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced on Mon., Feb. 7, that it will review the suitability of large-scale development projects – such as the proposed Pebble mine – in the Bristol Bay watershed. While this is just a first step, it was an important one…and one the EPA needed to take if we are to achieve our ultimate goal of protecting the world’s largest wild salmon fishery and one of the planet’s premiere sporting destinations. We’ll need to keep the foot on the gas pedal and crank up the grassroots networks in the coming year so we make sure EPA follows this process through to its (logical) conclusion.
Take a few minutes to learn more about this exciting announcement.
