This article by Patagonia’s Paul Moinester is a great follow up to Why Protect ANWR.  This opens our eyes to even more threatened areas in Alaska’ frontier.  Patagonia is lending their resources to protecting these vital lands and waters.  The region of concern here is the Chuitna River, near the village of Tyonek.  This region is a valuable, pristine environment for salmon, bear, moose, birds, and other wildlife.  It is threatened by open-pit coal mines, specifically the infamous Pebble Mine, and other industrial threats.  Join Patagonia and other activists to lend your support in protecting this region for future generations humans and wildlife.

Save the Chuitna – Watch the trailer and join the fight against coal mining on salmon streams
