Type of Support
Bristol Bay United, a project of the New Venture Fund, seeks to broaden opposition to a giant gold and copper mine proposed in the headwaters of Bristol Bay, the world’s most productive salmon fishery. The proposed mine poses a threat to Native American cultural values and the very valuable commercial salmon fishery in the bay. This grant would allow Bristol Bay United to organize Native communities and representatives of the commercial and sport fishery industry in opposition to the mine; assist in their travel to Washington, D.C., educate the Environmental Protection Agency on the need to stop the mine; and publicize widely its potential impacts.
