One Million People Speak Out to Save the Arctic Ocean

Posted: Updated:

Time is running out for President Obama to stop Shell from drilling in America's Arctic Ocean this summer.

As Obama considers this important decision -- one that will shape the future of our one and only Arctic and the Inupiat people who have depended on it for thousands of years -- Alaska Wilderness League put together this video to remind the president that more than 1 million people have spoken out for the Arctic.

Last month, we gathered at the White House to deliver petitions, letters and photos taken in polar bear masks to demonstrate the broad public support for protecting the future of the Arctic. Together, with one voice, we continue to demand: Protect our Arctic future and keep Shell out.
