Petition to End toxic waste dumping that threatens Cook Inlet belugas

act.defenders.org

Cook Inlet belugas are on the brink of extinction – but we can help them right now by keeping toxic waste out of their home.

These belugas are declining, and as a small population, every loss severely impacts the group’s chance of survival. Experts believe that pollution could be one of the barriers standing between these whales and recovery.

But the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, the agency responsible for issuing Clean Water Act permits, hasn’t stood in the way of toxic waste dumping in Cook Inlet. One corporation, Hilcorp, has been allowed to dump waste in Cook Inlet for years – the only place in U.S. waters where this kind of dumping is allowed.

With the survival of endangered belugas on the line, we can’t wait to act. 

Send a message to the ADEC: Stop permitting toxic waste dumping in Cook Inlet that threatens marine wildlife!
