Save the Arctic National Refuge
The out-going Trump administration just announced it will be selling tracts of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas companies. Trump has long threatened to open up the Arctic Refuge to oil and gas drilling, and with two months left in office, he is now rushing to do so.
Starting this week, the federal government is asking industries to pick which parts of the irreplaceable Arctic wilderness they want to see auctioned off. Up to 1.6 million acres of pristine wilderness will be made available.
This move further threatens a vast, untouched wilderness and the polar bears, caribou, and migrating birds that call it home.
