The pristine and beautiful Arctic: Shell wants to exploit it for oil. We want it protected.
Today a Shell drill ship attempted to sail towards the Arctic to begin drilling for oil off the coast of Alaska – but it didn’t get far. Activists are blocking the departure of the ship, which is scheduled to begin drilling in treacherous Arctic waters later this year.
Drilling in this fragile ecosystem – home to the polar bear, narwhal, Arctic fox and other iconic species – is unacceptable. A spill or accident in these waters would be disastrous and the harsh conditions would make responding to such a disaster almost impossible.
Take action alongside our activists now. Demand Shell stop their plans to put the fragile Arctic and its biodiversity at risk.
