Action Request: Petition
Location: United States


The Cline Mining Corporation wants to gouge a heavily polluting
coal mine out of the Flathead River Valley, a thriving Rocky
Mountain habitat for grizzly bears that straddles the border of
Montana and British Columbia.

We need your immediate action to block this dangerous open-pit
mining scheme, which would poison the headwaters of the Flathead
River and jeopardize the survival of downstream populations of
imperiled grizzly bears, wolves, cutthroat trout and other
wildlife.

Please go to http://www.savebiogems.org/bears/takeaction
and urge the British Columbia government to protect the
spectacular wildlands and wildlife of the Flathead basin by
rejecting the Cline Mining Corporation's reckless plan.

Cline's mining proposal calls for removing mountain tops and
building waste dumps and settling ponds right on top of the
headwaters of the Flathead River in British Columbia.

Hazardous pollution from the mine would travel downriver into
Montana, putting the endangered grizzlies and other wildlife of
Glacier National Park at even greater risk.

Please go to http://www.savebiogems.org/bears/takeaction
and join Governor Brian Schweitzer and Senator Max Bauchus of
Montana in speaking out against this scheme.

Thank you for helping to protect grizzly bears and other
imperiled Rocky Mountain wildlife.

Sincerely,

Frances Beinecke
President
Natural Resources Defense Council
