The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is North America’s most prolific bird nursery—a stretch of pristine wilderness and sparkling waters where millions of birds nest and breed each year. The Interior Department's announcement of suspension for oil and gas leases in the Refuge pending further review is only a temporary reprieve. Your symbolic gift supports our most forceful advocacy for permanent protections for this unique landscape, one of the world’s most important places for birds.
