Last year, over 62 million sockeye salmon returned to Bristol Bay, Alaska, setting records while the salmon run in other parts of Alaska was down. This watershed is home to the largest sockeye salmon run in the world. It is simply the wrong place for any mine to be built.
Yet that is exactly what is being proposed with the Pebble Mine, a massive open-pit gold and copper mine in the heart of Bristol Bay’s watershed, where last year over 21 million sockeye salmon returned to their natal streams to spawn. There are appropriate places to mine but the home of the largest sockeye salmon run in the world is absolutely the wrong place.
Save the largest wild sockeye salmon run in the world: Tell the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to stop Pebble Mine.
