Environmentalists Gather in DC to Protest Arctic Drilling

Environmentalists gathered today outside the Interior Department in Washington DC to deliver a message: don’t drill in the Arctic Ocean or Bristol Bay. The group of about two-dozen people symbolically turned over a giant comment card representing more than 260-thousand comments they gathered to halt a proposed development plan. Cindy Shogan, executive director of the Alaska Wilderness League, handed the comment card to the Interior Department’s Director of Alaska Affairs, Kim Elton.
