Time and time again: Protect Izembek Wilderness!

Action needed by 18, 2012

One of the world's most critically-important resting places for migrating birds is found in the cold-water lagoons and internationally significant wetlands of Izembek National Wildlife Refuge on the Alaskan Peninsula.
 
We need your help to keep this globally significant wildlife refuge intact.  A road is proposed through Izembek's protected Wilderness. The US Fish and Wildlife Service has begun a planning process to review the proposed land exchange and road project.
