The National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska is home to imperiled wildlife like polar bears, ringed and bearded seals, caribou, thousands of geese and shorebirds, and more. The NPRA’s current management plan makes 11 million acres available for development while protecting key habitat for those species.

The Trump administration has taken the next step to drill the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for oil and gas by issuing a draft environmental impact statement that could open the coastal plain of the refuge to leasing sometime later this year.

While the Administration holds our government hostage in an attempt to extort funding for reckless and expensive construction along the southern border, our wild lands and wildlife suffer. Our public parks and national parks are marred by vandalism and mounds of waste without the staff we count on to keep them clean and safe.
Ocelot, Tom Smylie, USFWS
Fewer than 80 ocelots remain in the United States, and this fragile population could be doomed by proposed border wall construction along an ecologically critical stretch of the Rio Grande.
Polar Bear
SAExploration, Inc. recently applied to conduct seismic testing in the biological heart of the Arctic Refuge this winter, in critical denning habitat for imperiled polar bears. If we can stop them, we can slow down or even prevent the oil invasion.
Unless we act fast, North Atlantic right whales will be gone forever. No more than 450 North Atlantic right whales are alive today, and deaths are outpacing births. That’s the very definition of critically endangered. A bill has been introduced in Congress to take the necessary steps to give these iconic whales a fighting chance at recovery.
Orca
The southern resident orca J-pod lost another member, four-year-old female J50. This is a devastating loss for the rapidly declining southern resident orca population and the third death this summer. Tell Governor Inslee to take immediate steps to save these orcas.

The Endangered Species Act (ESA) is in imminent danger. And if the ESA is destroyed, imperiled wildlife will lose its most important protections. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) has proposed a bill to cripple the ESA. This bill is a power grab designed to take away authority from scientists and give it to states that lack the resources needed to save wildlife from extinction. Tell your senators to oppose Barrasso’s bill and all efforts to rewrite the ESA.

The Trump administration’s proposal to open up oil and gas development along the Pacific Coast would intensify threats to orcas and quicken their extinction unless protective measures are adopted now. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) was expected to update the orcas’ critical habitat in 2017 to include coastal waters off Washington, Oregon and California but that update never happened. Urge NMFS to stop delaying this necessary step to save orcas before it’s too late.

One in four species of sharks is already in danger of extinction. The U.S. must take a leading role in the fight to stop the slaughter by banning the trade of shark fins at the national level. Call on your members of Congress to support S. 793 and H.R. 1456, the Shark Fin Trade Elimination Act, and put an end to the U.S. commercial fin trade.
