MOST RECENT

In spite of being one of the most biodiverse regions on the earth, short summer growing seasons cause the ecosystems in the Arctic Refuge to recover incredibly slowly from disturbance. Opening the Coastal Plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas drilling would have catastrophic, irreparable impacts to the plants, wildlife, and people who live there. Help us protect it by submitting public comment to the BLM before June 19th. Link in our bio.

It was a jam packed #wildernessweek in #washingtondc. Inspired by the many individuals and organizations working tirelessly to protect the #ArcticRefuge.

There are several videos uploaded to my story sharing a glimpse into our days of lobbying on the Hill, and a link in my profile detailing the Bill that was introduced this week by @rephuffman that I hope you will support.

I never would have thought my 6 week olds first cross-county trip would be to lobby Congress, but then again what sense does it make to industrialize one of the last great wildlands left on Earth?

The question is how did your work become ‘Glacier’?

“My practice informs my process which is the path and ground of my work. I am fascinated with nature’s materials and explore their possibilities and limitations.

My process is a journey of marking, mapping, deconstructing, and transforming perceptions.

Originally glaciers were considered permanent and unbreakable. This work typifies the impermanence of glaciers, and its vulnerability to climate change.

‘Glacier’ travels from one iteration to another morphing and constantly transforming, losing piece by piece, creating a disturbing beauty.

Why was the #ArcticRefuge opened up for drilling under the #GOPTaxScam? It’s because it’s yet another handout to corporations and the wealthy.
I joined my colleagues and hosted a roundtable discussion with tribal members and other public land defenders to discuss how we can better protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. #RepealTheDrillBill

You know, just your average day when @rebeccagoodstein testifies before the House Committee on Natural Resources on behalf of @patagonia! #proudsister #saveAlaskasArcticRefuge #arcticrefuge #nodrillinginthearctic

Home to the native Gwich'in people, and a safe-haven for imperiled wildlife, the #ArcticRefuge is one of last unspoiled places on earth.
The "Arctic Cultural and Coastal Plain Protection Act" introduced today would preserve our largest and wildest reserve. #ProtectTheArctic https://t.co/Nzf6dQ4gwC

It saddens me to know that if this administration continues on its path of removing protections, it will inevitably destroy our public lands and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge will be no more. The North Slope, the Brooks Range, the Arctic shores, and the people and animals who coexist together as they have for hundreds of years, will be forever changed.
I’ve seen it in its pristine form. I wish everyone could. I wish those who seek to destroy, those who want to profit from it, and even those who are ambivalent about it could visit and experience it as I have... because it’s not a place you just see, it’s a place you feel.

Feeling beyond grateful to be here at the Wilderness Society retreat near Tahoe, meeting these dedicated and courageous Wilderness Warriors and hearing about their work. Just spending some time with you makes my heart beat with love and hope for our world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you do and for inviting me to share my mindfulness sessions with you and some of this magical time alongside you on this retreat.
Also reminding all of you there is still time to comment on the BLM site about the Arctic Refuge. Link in my bio. Please comment and help us protect this fragile and precious place from drilling. .

In case you missed it! The U.S. government wants to open the #ArcticRefuge for oil and gas extraction in the birthing grounds of the Porcupine caribou. With declining caribou populations all over North America, this is a great opportunity to write a success story! Make your voices heard and speak up for the Porcupine caribou.

Take Action NOW for the Arctic Refuge-There has never been a greater threat than there is today, and we must do all we can to save this magnificent place.

This is one of my all-time favorite pictures of Thor, from one of my all-time favorite trips. The Arctic Refuge is important for many reasons (Gwich’in rights, caribou migration, undeveloped ecosystem, bird migration habitat, etc), but what makes it so real and urgent for me is I that have so many beautiful memories of time spent up there with people I care about that it breaks my heart to think of that landscape being developed and dotted with drilling platforms. .
Lots of people have messaged me to ask about next steps and what you can do. Right now through June 19 the BLM is accepting public comments on the proposed oil and gas leasing plan for the coastal plains of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Follow the link above 👆🏼in my profile to submit your comments and read more detail. Please engage and help spread the word about this comment period! .

ACTION ALERT: The oil and gas leasing process for the #ArcticRefuge is underway, but the decades-long battle to protect this iconic landscape is far from over. Congress passed legislation in December that mandates oil and gas drilling in the iconic Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Now, just a few months later, the Trump Administration is rushing to sell off oil leases in the Arctic Refuge’s coastal plain to oil companies. The oil and gas leasing process began on April 19 with a 60-day public comment period. The good news is that the Trump Administration must use the information gathered during the public comment period to inform how it proceeds with oil and gas exploration in the Refuge. You can speak up for the Arctic Refuge by submitting a formal comment. Visit our blog to take action today. (link in bio).
