Supporting the Arctic Circle through the Gwich’in Steering Committee

 

Taking my love for protecting the environment a step further!

Thanks to Gwich’in Steering Committee Deputy Director, Princess Lucaj for reaching out to me for a partnership to raise awareness for the protection of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, home to the Arctic Caribou and native Gwich’in people from oil leasing. Please find out more and donate at

I was inspired by the caribou’s massive antlers! Choose between hand forged sterling silver or upcycled plexiglass signage with silver leaf antlers to express your love for the protection of OUR environment.

“It’s good for your look and the environment too!”

The Gwich’in Steering Committee report concludes that drilling in the Arctic Refuge would violate the human rights of the Gwich’in people because of the impacts drilling would have on Gwich’in subsistence, culture, and way of life. The report was prepared on behalf of, and under the auspices of, the Gwich’in Steering Committee along with the Episcopal Church and Professor Richard J. Wilson, Director of the International Human Rights Law Clinic at American University. The public interest law firm Trustees for Alaska coordinated the preparation of the report.

Renowned for its wildlife, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is inhabited by forty-five species of land and marine mammals. It was established in 1960 as a promise to the American people to preserve "wildlife, wilderness, and recreational values." Vast and remote, this 19.5-million-acre Refuge is the size of South Carolina. While 8.9 million acres are designated as wilderness, the 1.5-million-acre coastal plain, the biological heart of the Refuge, does not yet have wilderness designation. Oil drilling has been proposed on the coastal plain.
