Guardians of the Wild: Wildlife Report;Spring2005, Vol. 5 Issue 1, p3
The article presents information on National Wildlife Refuge of Alaska. Big Oil and their lobbyists have failed repeatedly in the last few years to get their Arctic Refuge oil drilling proposals included in various pieces of congressional legislation. The fight for Arctic Refuge drilling could set a precedent for oil drilling in other critical wildlife areas in the future. A recent poll finds that a majority of Americans oppose drilling for oil in the Arctic Refuge.
