The Trump administration cut a deal with the corporation that would build the destructive Pebble Mine in Alaska’s Bristol Bay watershed, and we need your help to fight back. Click the link in our bio to take action.
The Bristol Bay watershed is worth fighting for. It is a sustainable economic powerhouse for local communities and the source of the lifeblood for Alaska Native cultures there. It produces an enormous portion of the world’s sockeye salmon catch and possibly the world’s largest Chinook salmon runs.

is a hoax, and do nothing about it, we will see them in court, and that's where facts matter." - Abbie Dillen, Earthjustice Vice President of Litigation, Climate and Energy

Major victory! A decades-long fight over a landmark rule protecting wild #forests
nationwide took another successful–and possibly final–turn last week after a U.S. district court threw out a last-ditch attack by the state of #Alaska
against the Roadless Rule.
The Roadless Rule prohibits most logging and road construction in roadless areas of national forests. These lands, today equaling about 50 million acres or about the size of Nebraska, are some of the wildest places left in America. Read more about this victory by clicking the link in our bio.

In addition to rebuilding, communities near oil refineries and chemical plants are also dealing with toxic leaks in the wake of hurricanes Harvey and Irma.⠀
Trump has decided to delay the EPA's Chemical Disaster Rule, which strengthens emergency preparedness and prevents future chemical disasters.⠀
In response, we have filed a lawsuit challenging this delay on behalf of multiple community organizations. ⠀
Our nation has just faced two of the worst hurricanes in history; now, not later, is the time to prevent toxic threats and to ensure that hazardous waste is removed. More info on our blog >> link in bio.

VICTORY! The Hawai‘i Supreme Court halted the aquarium industry’s unlimited collection and sale of reef fish and other wildlife.⠀
“We are thrilled with the decision. All five justices agree the practice of blindly doling out aquarium collection permits without studying environmental impacts is illegal,” said Earthjustice attorney Summer Kupau-Odo. ⠀

We'll see them in court! Delisting grizzlies defies the best available science and sidesteps important legal safeguards.⠀
“With grizzly deaths spiking and the population in apparent decline, the Yellowstone population needs continued protection, not a new threat of state-sponsored trophy hunting,” said Earthjustice attorney Timothy Preso. ⠀

There is only ONE day left to take action! The current Mexican gray wolf recovery plan is extremely flawed and will hinder recovery, if not lead to extinction. There are only about 100 Mexican gray wolves in the wild. Help us save the Mexican gray wolves by making your voice heard: link in bio. ⠀
