WASHINGTON (Nov. 13, 2017) – WCS today released a letter sent to the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, Chair Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Ranking Member Maria Cantwell (D-WA), urging a rejection of pending legislation to open portions of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas development.
WASHINGTON (October 19, 2017) – Today, an amendment was offered to the Senate’s budget resolution that would have stopped the effort to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling as a means to fund other priorities, including tax cuts. That amendment failed, and the budget subsequently passed, signifying one step closer to irreparable damage to one of America’s last remaining pristine places.
WASHINGTON (September 29, 2017) – Allowing oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge would be an unnecessary and harmful despoiling of a place of great natural value to wildlife, to the people who rely on this land, and for the American public – both now and in the future.
