Full-Page, Stop Pebble Mine Ad Runs in the New York Times

Ad Calls on EPA to Veto the Pebble Mine and Issue Permanent Protections for Bristol Bay, Alaska.

As part of a new media campaign launched this week, groups representing Bristol Bay Tribes, commercial fishermen, businesses, and conservation organizations ran a full-page ad in today’s D.C. edition of the New York Times.

The ad is part of a multi-platform print and digital media push running across Washington, D.C. for the next two months. It urges EPA to permanently protect Bristol Bay, Alaska from the ongoing threat of the Pebble Mine—a giant gold and copper mine proposed at the headwaters of the world’s greatest wild salmon fishery

Digital ads are also running today across the New York Times in DC.

The ads remind EPA that it could be a hero by acting under Section 404(c) of the Clean Water Act to veto the Pebble Mine.  

 There is broad support for EPA action to permanently protect Bristol Bay from the Pebble Mine.

A recent poll in Alaska found: 

  • 66% of Alaskans support action by the EPA to protect Bristol Bay. 
  • 64% oppose Pebble Mine, including an intense 50% of Alaskans who are strongly opposed to Pebble Mine (compared to only 12% who strongly support it). 

Given the broad support for EPA action and strong opposition to the Pebble Mine, this is the perfect opportunity to write a happy ending for the story of Bristol Bay.  

Using its authority under Section 404(c) of the Clean Water Act, EPA could be the hero that Bristol Bay wants and needs.  

Tell EPA to veto the Pebble Mine and permanently protect Bristol Bay.
