Take Action to Protect the Arctic Refuge Now

You can still help to stop Arctic Drilling.

At Patagonia, we are deeply saddened by the widespread destruction in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. We are also deeply concerned about the health and welfare of the people and the environment in the Gulf Coast area. Tragedies like this affect everyone. Currently, high prices at the gas tank are tough on all of us. But drilling in the Arctic is not the answer to this situation. We cannot drill our way to lower prices and long term energy independence.

Now is the time to make sure that our members of Congress know that preserving the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a high priority for America.

Across the country, citizen activists are contacting members of Congress and organizing events to raise the profile of the upcoming budget reconciliation vote — a vote which could lead to extensive oil drilling in one of America's last untouched frontiers. Lend your voice to the fight. Send a message to your senator saying that you oppose any language in the budget reconciliation bill that would open up the Refuge to drilling.
