We have all experienced pollution in one form or another. Whether it is trash by the rivers and lakes, or something much more serious and larger in scope, it all affects us to a great degree. Beyond the typical pollution issues you can bend over and pick up, here are some fantastic links to organized efforts that are addressing current and long standing issues.
Thanks for becoming involved, and this isn’t just coming from us. The outdoors is not only a part of our outdoor recreation industry, it is important “for more than just us”.
Get involved, have fun, and feel good about it! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call or write. At Dvorak Expeditions, we have more than just ideas. To us, it is a way of life. We hope it becomes a part of your life too. We each, together, can make a real difference
Being a Voice for Wildlife
One of the best ways to protect the environment is to make sure our laws and policies make sense for wildlife.
Save Bristol Bay – The Pebble deposit is a massive storehouse of gold, copper and molybdemum, located in the headwaters of the Kvichak and Nushagak Rivers, two of the eight major rivers that feed Bristol Bay. If built, Pebble would be one of the largest mines in the world. Because of its size, geochemistry and location, Pebble runs a high risk of polluting Bristol Bay, one of the world’s few and most productive wild salmon strongholds that supports a $500 million commercial and sport fishery. For this reason, Trout Unlimited is working with a diverse group of fishermen, guides, lodge owners, Alaska Natives, scientists, chef, restaurant owners, seafood lovers and many others to try to stop the Pebble development and to protect Bristol Bay.
