Streaming for Bristol Bay
Three hours of fish, fun and music to celebrate and protect Bristol Bay - streamed to your habitats. Although we cannot gather in Ninilchik this year, Cook Inletkeeper is excited to team up with Salmonfest to bring the spirit of our annual salmon celebration to you. The event features a variety of “fun size” micro sets from over 15 of your favorite Salmonfest artists as well as live art, stories, and a call to action from salmon champions across Alaska to stop Pebble Mine. Salmonfest: Streaming for Bristol Bay is a free event, but viewers are encouraged to donate to support the work to stop the Pebble Mine.
Tell the EPA to #VetoPebbleMine
Despite the threat of a mining disaster in Bristol Bay, Pebble Mine permitting has been rushed through at record speed. The EPA has a responsibility to protect Bristol Bay communities and must veto the Pebble Mine.
The final environmental review for Pebble Mine was released on July 23rd 2020. The Army Corps can issue a record of decision and permit the mine after 30 days. Now's the time to make our opposition to Pebble Mine heard. CALL OR EMAIL the EPA Regional Director Chris Hladick and Alaskan Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan and tell them to do everything in their power to push the EPA to veto the Pebble Mine.

Calling the EPA is simple. Watch this video for tips & inspiration.
- The EPA has the authority under the clean water act to veto Pebble Mine, they just need the motivation and the bravery to use it.
- Throughout the permitting process the EPA has questioned the Army Corps for cutting corners and ignoring the science
- According to EPA, the development of Pebble Mine would likely result in the “permanent loss of 2,292 acres of wetlands” and “hundreds of miles of streams.”
