Save The Arctic
On March 24, 2015, Activists stood in opposition to Arctic Drilling in front of the White House and at a public hearing on Shell's plan to stage its Arctic Drilling fleet in the Port of Seattle.

The Sierra Club, Alaska Wilderness League, Greenpeace, Native Alaskans and supporters gathered in front of the White House in Washington, D.C., March 25, 2015, to call on President Obama to stop oil drilling in the Arctic in connection with the 26th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill.

Activists held large images showing the impact of the oil spill on wildlife in 1989, the oil still present in the environment 25 years after the Exxon Valdez spill, illustrating the 75 percent likelihood of a major oil spill that would result from any Arctic Drilling and the beauty of the Arctic.

A coalition of environmental groups projected a “Save the Arctic” message on the side of the Crowne Plaza Building in Anchorage December 1, 2014 as Alaska natives, Arctic experts and local activists testified for Arctic protection from oil drilling before Bureau of Ocean Energy Management officials in Anchorage.
