The State of Alaska and international mining companies are determined to break Alaska’s Brooks Range –  beginning with the creation of an industrial road to the proposed Ambler mine and potentially massive mining district. To support the mining industry, the State of Alaska aims to cut right through the heart of beautiful Northwest Alaska and establish a massive industrial corridor that will devastate the water, landscape, biodiversity, and Alaska Native lifeways. But our bond to this place is deeper than any ore. And together, we can stop them from breaking ground.

A Road to Ruin

The proposed 211-mile, private, industrial access corridor would run through the Alaska Native villages of Kobuk, Shungnak, Ambler and sit just downstream from where international mining companies hope to break ground on multiple open-pit mines.


Gates of the Arctic

The road would cut right through the foothills of one of our country’s most majestic landscapes – Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve.


Pollution-Spewing Trucks

Pollution-spewing trucks hauling mining materials to and from the mining corridor would traverse the stretch hourly. 


Fresh Water

Thousands of rivers and streams that are the lifeblood of the region’s communities, culture, and wildlife would be bulldozed or redirected. 


Caribou Herd

This road would disrupt the 2,700+ mile migration route of the Western Arctic caribou herd, threatening the communities that rely on hunting the animals to feed their families.

Start Over

All Risk No Reward All Risk No Reward

The proposed Ambler Road would cut through one of our nation’s largest and wildest public landscapes. These millions of cherished wild acres support one the greatest caribou herds left on Earth, a way of life for the region’s Alaskan Native peoples, and world-class hunting, fishing, and recreation. All this would be sacrificed so that foreign mining companies could exploit the region and squeeze profits from Alaskan land. During a time when key Alaskan institutions desperately need funding, wasting state money on foreign mining companies is effectively prioritizing outside interests over the will and general well-being of all Alaskans.

Right now, Alaska leaders are pushing to obtain federal permits to build the destructive Ambler Road. We must take action to stop it.
