From Robert Redford:

This is the moment we’ve been waiting for.

A long-awaited study by the EPA has confirmed that the Pebble Mine — along with its estimated 10 billion tons of mining waste — would spell disaster for Alaska’s Bristol Bay, its legendary salmon runs, its pristine environment and its Native communities.

Now we must prevail on the President to take the next crucial step: To direct his EPA to use its authority to stop the mine once and for all.

Screen Shot 2013 01 09 at 11.16.09 AM Robert Redford needs your helpI’ll be working arm in arm with NRDC this month to bring our “Stop Pebble” message directly to Capitol Hill and the White House through a major media campaign.

Please do your part to help. First, watch the special, one-minute video I’ve recorded for NRDC activists like you.

Then make your voice heard. Tell President Obama to save Bristol Bay and secure a lasting environmental legacy by stopping the Pebble Mine.

Since 2010, you and I have fought alongside NRDC to block this disastrous project — a colossal open-pit copper-and-gold mine that global mining giants want to gouge out of the spectacular untamed wilderness above Bristol Bay.

But now a decisive battle in Washington is at hand — and we need to mobilize again.

Please send a message to President Obama today. He needs to hear loud and clear from the American people — both those in Bristol Bay and millions more across the country.

The mining companies have already spent more than $100 million on this ill-begotten scheme. They’re not about to give up without a monumental fight.

If we are going to counter their lobbying juggernaut, we need each and every NRDC activist to get our message to the White House.

I’m sure you share my conviction that we must not allow one of America’s last and greatest wild places to be plundered for copper and gold.

Please help by taking a minute to watch my video. Then, join me in calling on President Obama to do the right thing for Bristol Bay, its wildlife and its people by directing EPA to stop the Pebble Mine. Thank you.
