Precious Eiders and Other Birds At Risk

Thanks to Audubon for this alert:  Let your voice be heard!!  Ledyard Bay, off the northern Coast of Alaska in the Arctic Ocean,  is a haven for all four species of eiders.  Spectacled, King, Common, and Steller’s eiders feast there.  All of western North America’s King Eiders, an estimated half a million birds, stop here.  Proposed new offshore oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean, where oil spills can’t be cleaned up, could put this valuable place at risk. Please tell the Department of Interior: “No oil development in the Arctic Ocean” in a comment on the new 5-year oil and gas leasing program at http://policy.audubon.org/take-action
