Great Enclosed Water Threatened by Administration

Lake Teshekpuk is the largest lake in the Alaskan Arctic. This 320-mile long lake is home to hundreds of thousands of different species of birds who migrate here from five different continents.

“Humanity can no longer stand by in silence while our wildlife are being used, abused and exploited.
It is time we all stand together, to be the voice of the voiceless before it’s too late. Extinction means forever.”
Paul Oxton

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
