Alaska is home to 23 million acres of pristine habitat for iconic species like polar bears, caribou, and birds that migrate to six continents — even, maybe, to your own backyard. But if ConocoPhillips gets its way, this single-largest piece of undeveloped public land in the United States will be breached by a gigantic oil development.

The Western Arctic is no place for industrial fossil fuel development — and you can help save it.

Successful litigation and fierce advocacy have held this project at bay thus far. But the federal government is now taking public comments on whether to reapprove the proposed Willow Master Development Plan. The project would include up to 250 wells, hundreds of miles of ice roads, more than 380 miles of pipelines, an airstrip, a gravel mine, a processing plant, and countless trucks that could crush mother polar bears and cubs in their dens.

And in the midst of the ever-growing climate emergency — already hitting the Arctic hard — this project would emit more than 280 million tons of greenhouse gases over 30 years. Meanwhile it would cause oil spills and toxic air pollution harming Indigenous communities on Alaska's North Slope.

Tell the Interior Department to reject this project and keep Arctic oil in the ground — for the sake of wildlife, people and the climate.
