The battle for Bristol Bay and the protection of that amazing ecosystem continues on and we are going to continue to do everything we can to get the message out to as many folks as we can.
Our partnership with The Sportsman’s Alliance for Alaska continues with our Moose Promotion and I would like to encourage each and everyone of you to log on and make a donation of $50.00 so that you can have an opportunity to win one of the best packages I have seen put together. The package includes a Kimber Rifle, A Leupold scope, A set of Sitka Gear and 7 day moose hunt in Alaska. All of this for a donation of $50.00 to protect one of the greatest ecosystems in America.
As well we have some news from the Renewable Resources Coalition to share as well. READ MORE…
A Note from RRC…
Over 83,000 Alaskans voted for Ballot Measure 4 (the Clean Water Initiative) in the recent election. Although we lost, this huge outpouring of support for Alaska’s clean water and wild salmon is inspiring and gratifying.
We will continue to stand with Bristol Bay residents, an overwhelming majority of whom voted “yes” to prohibit pollution of their watershed and the tens of thousands of Alaskans who want to protect our pure, clean water and the wild salmon that sustain Alaskan families, traditions, and our State’s multi-million-dollar fishing industry.
In the end, no set of regulations will ever completely ensure that mining will be environmentally benign. Instead, voters and their elected representatives must carefully weigh the potential benefits and risks associated with each new major mine proposal. Now more than ever, honest and rigorous consideration is needed before deciding whether to allow development of the proposed Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay’s headwaters.
Our position is clear: We believe the proposed Pebble Mine would endanger one of the world’s greatest fisheries and the communities and industries that rely on it. Should Alaska and the Federal government eventually decide to approve Pebble, the consequences will last forever.
