Protect the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge

It’s the largest wildlife refuge east of the Mississippi – and one company's proposed mine threatens the wild creatures that call it home.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is deciding whether to allow strip-mining on the edge of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, a spectacular wetland near the Georgia and Florida state line.

The refuge is home to 1,000 different kinds of plants and animals – all of which are in danger if this project moves forward.
