Business Statement on Need to Protect the Arctic Refuge

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a national treasure and a sacred landscape. It is one of our nation’s most majestic public lands, home to the Porcupine Caribou Herd, denning polar bears, musk oxen, wolves, and nearly 200 species of migratory birds tying our backyards to the Arctic Refuge.

This land has sustained the Gwich’in people since time immemorial – they call the Arctic Refuge, “The Sacred Place Where Life Begins.” The caribou are essential to the Gwich’in spiritual and cultural life and their calving grounds are in the Coastal Plain of the Refuge. Drilling in the refuge would threaten caribou migrations, cause lower caribou birth rates, and jeopardize food security and threaten the health and safety of Indigenous communities. Protecting the caribou is a matter of basic human rights.

In addition to its importance to Indigenous communities, the Arctic Refuge is a critical denning habitat for the Southern Beaufort Sea population, the world’s most imperiled polar bears due to climate change. Over 75 percent of the coastal plain is designated critical habitat for threatened polar bears under the Endangered Species Act.

Drilling in the Arctic Refuge is also incredibly risky. The massive infrastructure needed to extract and transport the oil, as well as accompanying air, water, and noise pollution from drilling, would have devastating impacts on this pristine and fragile natural area. Chronic spills of oil and other toxic substances in the fragile tundra would irreversibly and forever scar this land.

Fossil fuel extraction will have serious biological, cultural, and climate impacts in the rapidly-warming Arctic Refuge, which is ground zero for climate change and is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world. Drilling in the refuge’s coastal plain would compound the devastating climate impacts already being felt in this majestic place.

The Arctic Refuge belongs to everyone across the U.S.and drilling the refuge continues to be widely opposed by an overwhelming majority. According to recent polling, 70 percent of voters oppose drilling. For generations, bipartisan support from all political stripes have understood that the Arctic Refuge should be left alone and conserved for Indigenous rights, for wildlife, for future generations, and for the health of our planet.

We ask oil and gas corporations and the other businesses that support drilling activities to not violate the Refuge’s biological heart, the coastal plain, and to listen to the will of the people. We must hold our national treasure in trust for future generations.

Over 300 businesses have joined the overwhelming majority of people who oppose drilling in the Arctic Refuge. We must restore protections to stop destructive oil exploration and drilling. If we don’t act now, this sacred landscape will be harmed forever.
