Grizzly and polar bears, caribou, rare birds, and other wildlife species rely on public land in the Western Arctic. These sensitive areas are also home to dozens of Indigenous communities. But ConocoPhillips and other fossil fuel companies just see millions of acres of land for climate-busting oil and gas drilling.

The Biden-Harris administration is acting to protect huge swaths of the Arctic from the oil industry’s unrelenting push to drill. Recently, in a major victory, the administration halted oil and gas leasing across 10 million acres of the Western Arctic.

They are accepting public comments on their bold plan, and we need you to send a comment right away defending the administration’s plan from oil industry attacks.

This is a very rare opportunity for us to help shape which Special Areas or sensitive landscapes in the Western Arctic will be protected from oil industry exploitation and destruction.

And scientists know that the Arctic region is warming more than four times faster than the rest of the world, so stopping drilling here is a key step to avert climate catastrophe. Tell the Biden-Harris administration to protect the Western Arctic from dirty fossil fuel development before it’s too late.
