Help Save an Irreplaceable Way of Life

Bowhead whales, polar bears and other Arctic wildlife are a vital part of the Inupiat Eskimo way of life. These hardy people subsist on the natural bounty offered by healthy ecosystems along the coast of Alaska’s Chukchi Sea.

But Shell Oil’s plans to drill for oil and gas in these waters could spell doom for these communities – and the wildlife that is so inextricably linked to their survival.

Help save wildlife and preserve this centuries-old culture. Urge Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to rescind drilling permits that could devastate these pristine coasts and kill whales, polar bears and other wildlife.
