Here’s a great video from the Renewable Resources Foundation that explains how important sockeye salmon are to the entire ecosystem of Alaska’s Bristol Bay. The video makes no mention of the proposed Pebble Mine project, which threatens salmon stocks, but anyone who understands what’s at risk will surely see how unwise the project is. So, for a non strident, apolitical video, this one actually packs a pretty good punch in the fight to stop Pebble. Share it with your friends who wonder what all the fuss is about.
And while we’re on the subject, have you sent letters to your congressional delegation and important officials in Washington? If you haven’t, we’ve made it very easy to do so on our Bristol Bay Action page. Take a look, and then let your representatives know how strongly you feel about this issue.
