We Need Your Help to #ProtectTheArctic

Today, the Trump administration announced its plan to hold a lease sale for rights to drill in the Coastal Plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The sale is set to take place on January 6, two weeks before President-Elect Biden steps into the White House. This is undoubtedly bad news, but it’s not the end of our fight—we can still prevent the Refuge from being exploited.
The time is now to raise our voice for the Refuge. We are calling on President-Elect Biden to take immediate action to halt development when he steps into office on January 20.

One way to encourage the new administration to take action is by creating a strong, vocal presence on social media. We’ve created a social media toolkit that includes graphics, copy, and Zoom backgrounds. Additionally, we’ve curated a list of links to resources about the Refuge and its inhabitants, and we are using a text-to-action number (text “Arctic Refuge to 40649”) to facilitate sharing these resources far and wide.
If you are curious to learn more about the Refuge, sign up for our webinar with Alaska Wilderness League on December 17.

Thank you for taking action to protect this iconic, irreplaceable landscape.
