Arctic Refuge Threatened Again: Alaska Brief Newsletter – July 2014

Dear Supporter:

Once again, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is under threat. And once again, Trustees for Alaska is going to court to protect the Arctic Refuge and keep oil and gas exploration out of the calving grounds of the Porcupine Caribou Herd. This time because of a lawsuit brought by Governor Parnell and the State of Alaska against the Department of the Interior (DOI). The state wants to conduct extensive seismic surveys inside the Coastal Plain. The DOI has stated such activities are prohibited by law. Trustees for Alaska is intervening on the side of DOI to protect the Arctic Refuge.

Sincerely,

201405290391
