Arctic National Wildlife Refuge Maps

Recently Shell Oil was given the go-ahead to drill for oil in the Beaufort Sea adjacent to ANWR, the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge. It seems it is a constant fight to make the government keep its promise to maintain ANWR as a REFUGE rather than a place to be exploited for oil.

In 2002, a Fish and Wildlife employee was fired for putting caribou calving location maps on the ANWR website. I was able to archive this website before it was totally scrubbed from the internet and have had it, in its entirety, on ever since.

I'll have more on this as it unfolds. But it looks as though the government, once again, may be closing in on ANWR.
