Defend the Arctic from seismic exploration

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of our nation's treasures. It's our country's largest, most remote wildlife refuge and home to caribou, walrus, arctic wolves, foxes and birds from all 50 states. The Arctic Refuge also has the densest population of denning mother polar bears, and experts worry that human activity could drive mothers to abandon their dens and cubs. Seismic exploration could also injure, crush or kill denning polar bears who are hibernating under the surface.

There are some places too special, too ecologically important, too sacred to drill in. The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of them. I urge you not to allow seismic exploration in the Arctic Refuge to protect this unique place and its wildlife for generations to come.
