Shut down strip mining in the Okefenokee Refuge!

A massive strip mine proposal is poised to threaten wildlife in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. Help us shut it down by signing our petition today!

Twin Pines Minerals, an Alabama-based company, is once again pushing for approval to break ground on a roughly 8,000-acre mining project right next to the Okefenokee. If their permits are granted, the refuge’s wildlife - including Florida black bears, herons, alligators and more – will be in danger.

With your help, we can stop this destructive project before it starts! Add your signature urging the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GA EPD) to reject Twin Pines’ permit applications today!

Add your signature before the deadline: Tell GA EPD to reject strip mining permits and protect over 1,000 species in the Okefenokee Refuge!
