Region 10 requests comment on a proposal to protect one of the world’s most valuable salmon fisheries, in Bristol Bay, Alaska, from the risks posed by a mine at the Pebble deposit.
Development of this mine would result in one of the largest open pit copper mines in the world and would
threaten one of the world’s most productive salmon fisheries.

EPA Releases Proposal to Protect Bristol Bay, Alaska
Region 10 of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has proposals in the works for the protection of Bristol Bay, Alaska.
There is an open comment period until September 19, 2014 for the public to show their will as far as the EPA Proposals. The protections of this action are against the Pebble Mine.
It is very good news that the EPA, is striving for protections for this area. With the melting, and loss of habitat for so many critters, this is a move in the right direction for the health of humans, and all life, and lifestyles, in this area. Native Indian Tribes are affected on a daily basis by the degradation of wildlife and habitat.

The thing that must happen is that citizens who care about this, must make their voices heard. If the only ones who respond to public comments are the mining industry, then the will of The People will not be heard, and our beautiful Earth will suffer even more harm, and more water will be destroyed. We cannot afford for this to happen.
I am begging you to share this, and ask every one you know, and who cares to send in your comment. It is very easy to do.
