The battle over the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge doesn't have to continue indefinitely. Energy conservation measures could easily save more oil than what exists under the Refuge. Equally important, permanent protection for the Refuge would safeguard a national treasure, changing it from a battleground into a beautiful sanctuary of Wilderness. Congress has the power to afford such a protection, but they need to hear from you to make it happen.

In the House, Representatives Ed Markey (D-MA) and Jim Ramstad (R-MN) have introduced H.R. 39, a bill that would permanently protect the Coastal Plain of the Refuge as Wilderness. The Senate will introduce a companion bill soon. While this bill has been introduced in previous congressional sessions, the current Congress represents the best opportunity in years to build momentum towards passage of an Arctic Wilderness bill.

Ask your representative to support all efforts to permanently protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
