"America's wildlife simply deserves better"
Collin O'Mara, President and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation, said today:
"Over 67% of Americans oppose drilling in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge, so it’s no surprise that majority leadership did not want to hold a public vote showing which Senators prioritized tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations over the preservation of one of the most important wildlife areas in the world. The critical habitat for polar bears, porcupine caribou, musk oxen and hundreds of species of migratory birds will be desecrated by hundreds of miles of roads and pipelines connecting thousands of well pads and other infrastructure. America’s wildlife simply deserves better and we will relentlessly continue our defense of the imperiled wildlife of the Arctic Refuge."
