Help protect the National Wildlife Arctic Refuge

Is it proper that wilderness & it’s creatures should suffer because we came?

The Wilderness Society have created a letter to sign & submit to congress, in hopes to get congress to support & pass the Arctic wilderness bills this year. It's our job as humans & citizens of this beautiful untouched wilderness, to keep it's land & it's inhabitants safe & unsoiled.

A place so unharmed by man & so wild, it begs the question of how man ever made a positive impact on this land. This possibility of drilling for oil resources on this virgin land sickens me to a depth I didn't know possible. I am doing everything in my power to get the word out on keeping this land protected & ask you all the same. Without wilderness, we are nothing.

The oil & gas industry and its allies are lobbying to open Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling. If this happens, America's last great wild frontier would be forever changed. Together we can save the Arctic Refuge for future generations. Please sign the letter & submit to congress in the link below.
