Urge Secretary Salazar to Protect the Izembek NWR!
Monday, March 04, 2013
We need your help to put a stop to a proposed road that would slice through the biological heart of Alaska’s Izembek National Wildlife Refuge, a designated Wilderness that is home to brown bears, fox, and caribou, as well as a critical stopover point for many migratory birds. Supporters of the road claim that it is needed to safely evacuate residents of rural King Cove during medical emergencies, but taxpayers have already spent $37.5 million on an effective solution to this very problem. Please urge Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar to keep this amazing place protected!
