Arctic National Wildlife Refuge Threatened

No votes yet

The Alaska Wildlife Alliance is asking for help in its crusade to save the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from legislation that would allow oil companies to drill there. According to the website the ANWR "represents the only portion (5%) of Alaska's north slope that is not currently open to drilling." That's a significant percentage of land, even though it may not seem like a lot. To be fair, oil companies DO try not to allow spills or leaks to happen. Public opinion is against them enough as it is, which costs them a lot. Not to mention it's in their best interests not to lose any of their product. But, regardless of those facts, accidents can and will happen, and those accidents endanger and destroy countless species as well as harm the environment as a whole. It's in our interest to keep this land set aside and away from human intervention, as it was originally intended.
