Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: The People and Wildlife of the Coastal Plain

Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: The People and Wildlife of the Coastal Plain

Abstract

Arctic National Wildlife Refuge harbors the greatest biodiversity of any protected area north of the Arctic Circle. However, oil companies and the Trump administration are fighting to open an essential area of the Refuge to drilling: the coastal plain. A healthy coastal plain is integral to the persistence of indigenous peoples and wildlife. Scroll through our new story map describing the people and wildlife of the coastal plain that would be affected by such activity. Please join Defenders in the fight to make sure no development occurs on this treasured and iconic land. To learn more and take action, go to www.defenders.org/arctic.
