Save The Teshekpuk Lake region

Hello all I just recieved this email from the wilerness society and thought the issue was important enough to pass on to my American readers, perticularly as this sale is all in the name of oil and gas exploration. So please spend a couple of minutes and save this pristine landscape form exploitation.
As soon as September 27, a very special wild place could be sold to the oil and gas industry – unless we act now!

The Teshekpuk Lake region, one of the most important and remarkable wetlands on the planet, is essential habitat for millions of birds and tens of thousands of caribou. It is also a stunning sweep of landscape, remarkable even in Alaska where a grand scale is the only scale.

Together, we can get the Interior Department to do the only sensible thing: cancel the September 27 sale of this precious public land.

The sale is imminent! Act quickly before it’s too late!

Native people, conservation groups, scientists, sportsmen’s groups, and the general public strongly oppose the drilling plan. Will you join the chorus?

WASHINGTON, Sept. 8 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The following is a statement from Mike Daulton, the director of conservation policy, National Audubon Society:

"The court's preliminary decision gives a reprieve to some of the most sensitive habitat in Alaska. The judge has rightly expressed concern that the Bush Administration's rush to drill does not account for the environmental damage that would happen in the most important wetlands in the Arctic."
