Tell the oil giant not to bid for leases on the "sacred, unspoiled land" of the Arctic Refuge

As the Trump administration plans to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to lease for oil and gas drilling, we must urge Chevron not to bid on the coastal plain located in northeastern Alaska. Scientists believe oil and gas drilling in the Arctic Refuge will contribute to the current climate crisis and will have an existential threat to the area.

Opening the Arctic Refuge to oil and gas leasing will “destroy a fragile and near-pristine ecosystem and compromise the well being of the Indigenous communities of the Gwich’in and Iñupiat peoples,” according to The Wilderness Society.

“The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is sacred land that sustains not just the Gwich’in and Iñupiat Peoples but is one of the last untouched ecosystems in the world,” Siqiñiq Maupin, the director of Sovereign Iñupiat for a Living Arctic (SILA), said.

With a majority of Americans opposed to drilling in the Arctic Refuge, we must hold Chevron accountable and tell the oil giant not to bid for leases on this “sacred, unspoiled land.”

It’s time to hold Chevron accountable and urge them to stay out of the Arctic Refuge.

It's insane to keep drilling for and extracting fossil fuels while we are trying to minimize / eliminate carbon emissions!

The Arctic Refuge must remain undamaged and drilling must be kept out of the Refuge forever. It is a REFUGE and that means something!
