In 2019, we saw huge successes and persisting challenges in our efforts to stop the proposed Pebble mine. Despite delivering over 685,000 public comments opposing Pebble and the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) and moving Senator Murkowski to see the fast-tracked nature of the permit review process, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers continues to push Pebble toward becoming a reality in Bristol Bay. In the first six months of 2020, the Corps is scheduled to issue Pebble’s most important federal permit.
Put simply, we have a short window to urge decision makers at all levels to deny this permit. Then, we’ll work together to stop the proposed Pebble mine altogether in 2020.
As we enter a busy shopping and giving time, we encourage you to choose gifts that tell the story of Bristol Bay, give others a taste of the incredible fishery, or products that help spread the word about Pebble and give back to efforts to stop it from becoming a reality.
To our business partners and supporters: thank you from the bottom of our fish-filled hearts. In this season, we are incredibly grateful for your generosity, commitment and efforts to stand with us for Bristol Bay. Happy holidays from the Trout Unlimited Save Bristol Bay family to yours!
