Tell Travelers Insurance: Don't insure drilling in the Arctic
We, the undersigned, urge you to commit to not providing insurance cover for any energy project in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The Arctic Refuge is the crown jewel of Alaska's wild frontier. Its 19 million acres are home to 42 species of fish, 45 mammals, and more than 200 types of birds. There is no cell phone service, no roads, and the only trails are the ones paved by wildlife.
Oil drilling and exploration risk all this. Oil drilling comes with infrastructure, which disrupts wildlife habitats and destroys sensitive tundra. It also comes with air pollution. As such, we urge you to commit to protecting the Arctic Refuge.
