Video: Saving the Last Wilderness
 The Arctic Refuge Under Threat

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is home to rich biodiversity, including Caribou, muskoxen, wolves, nearly 200 species of migratory birds and polar bears that thrive in the icy conditions. It is a sacred place, where life begins for the native Alaskans, specifically the Gwich’in people, who call this pristine and vast wilderness home. Also, it is a critical wildlife corridor that stretches from the Canadian border across Alaska to the Chukchi Sea. But, like many wild places today, it is under threat. Large US companies want to drill for oil and gas.
