Protect the Arctic from drilling

Agency/Docket Number: 19X.LLAK930000.L13100000.EI0000.241A

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge coastal plain is 1.6 million acres, home to denning polar bears, caribou, wolves, muskox, migratory birds from all over the country, and countless other wildlife. Causing irreparable damage to this unique landscape just to drill a little more oil would be a national tragedy.

There is no way to do massive, industrial-level oil and gas drilling in the Arctic Refuge without damaging vital habitat. Building roads and bringing in heavy equipment disfigures the landscape before the drilling even begins. Once ruined, the refuge cannot be restored. I urge you to protect the Arctic from drilling.
