The Refuge

Author(s): Patagonia
Video Release Date: November 28, 2016
Video Source: YouTube

For hundreds of generations, the Gwich’in people of Alaska and northern Canada have depended on the caribou that migrate through the Arctic Refuge. With their traditional culture now threatened by oil extraction and climate change, two Gwich’in women are continuing a decades-long fight to protect their land and future. 

Patagonia and the Alaska Wilderness League are standing in solidarity with the Gwich’in people to protect the Arctic Refuge from drilling. Join us by signing the Care2 petition asking Congress to designate the coastal plain of the refuge as Wilderness.
