Just a quick one, this from Langdon Cook, author of “Fat of the Land: Adventures of a 21st century forager” — his call to save Bristol Bay in Alaska. Why? The Pebble Mine–a huge gold and copper mine–has been proposed to be placed at the “…headwaters of the greatest salmon-producing watershed in the world, a place of unparalleled natural value and unbroken ecological processes.” Read more HERE, and sign the petition.

But there are also other threats to Bristol Bay, which, according to the Alaska Marine Conservation Council, “has been the target of the oil industry for more than thirty years.”
