Momentum for America's Arctic!
February was a very good month for America's Arctic. 11 million acres of Arctic wild lands
in Western Alaska were protected, allowing the breathtaking caribou herd to
birth their young in peace. Tens of thousands of people converged on the White
House to demand that the President move away from oil drilling and towards
clean energy solutions. Shell Oil finally announced that it would not be able
to drill in the Polar Bear Seas in 2013.
We've won some key
protections for America's Arctic in the last month, but there's so much more to
do. Right now, President Obama and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar
are deciding whether or not to recommend that the coastal plain of the Arctic
Refuge -- another crucial area for Alaska’s caribou, polar bears and birds -- be
protected permanently. And they need to
know that Americans want them to keep drill ships out of the Polar Bear Seas.
