Wild Border Watersheds

Petition Circulating in Alaska Regarding Transboundary Watershed Pollution Concerns

Headwaters mining development in the transboundary watersheds could produce water pollution harmful to downstream Southeast Alaska fishing and tourism industries while offering few, if any, Alaska side economic benefits.  Alaskans are circulating a petition to their congressional delegation urging U.S. State Department involvement  toward safeguarding regional fishing and tourism interests in these international watersheds.  The online petition can be accessed here.
