While it may have been some time since the Bish Administration had their sights on the Arctic Wildlife Refuge, like nearly every ecosystem with potential for big oil profits, the battle never ends. Patagonia has made a new video short that examines the issue.
“For hundreds of generations, the Gwich’in people of Alaska and northern Canada have depended on the caribou that migrate through the Arctic Refuge. With their traditional culture now threatened by oil extraction and climate change, two Gwich’in women are continuing a decades-long fight to protect their land and future.
Patagonia and the Alaska Wilderness League are standing in solidarity with the Gwich’in people to protect the Arctic Refuge from drilling. Join us by signing the Care2 petition asking Congress to designate the coastal plain of the refuge as Wilderness.”
