Take Action for Teshekpuk Lake

Ignoring vocal opposition from Alaska Natives, scientists, and sportsmen, the Bush administration opened for leasing 100 percent of the internationally significant Teshekpuk Lake Special Area in the Northeast Planning Area of the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPRA).

The decision eliminates long-established wildlife and environmental protections first put in place by Reagan Administration Interior Secretary James Watt.

Teshekpuk Lake is a part of America's heritage. Valued by the Native Inupiat people of Alaska, America's sportsmen, conservationists and naturalists.

Our country deserves this unspoiled area, no matter how much Big Oil is willing to pay for it. Please take the time to send the CEO of ConocoPhillips and the Secretary of the Interior a letter, to tell them how you feel about protecting the Teshekpuk Lake Special Area.

“While the battle over drilling the refuge raged in Congress, the Bush Administration leased vast tracts of land to the west and offshore waters to the highest bidder.”
