[The Scholars for Defending the Arctic Refuge campaign is hosted on the website for The Last Oil project. In February 2018, the University of New Mexico convened The Last Oil symposium as a scholarly and activist response to Trump administration policies in Arctic Alaska and beyond. In May, we invited graduate students, faculty members, museum curators, independent scholars and writers, postdoctoral fellows, and other scholars from around the world to support the campaign. More than 500 scholars representing almost all 50 US states and 20 different countries endorsed the letter before the end of the public comment period. The scholars’ expertise ranges across more than 40 academic disciplines—from climate science, history, and economics to conservation biology, art, and Indigenous studies. On June 19, 2018, the letter with names of all the signers and a cover letter was submitted to the Bureau of Land Management as part of the public scoping process. The letter was featured in Greenwire/E&E News and Politico. It is also being used by environmental and Indigenous organizations in their ongoing campaigns to defend the refuge.]

Dear Secretary Zinke:

The US Department of Interior recently announced a Notice of Intent to initiate an expedited process for oil and gas leasing, exploration, and development on the Coastal Plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The Arctic Refuge may seem far away to many, but its Coastal Plain is one of the most significant biological nurseries in the Circumpolar North. Opening the Coastal Plain to fossil fuels exploration and development would endanger this nursery. It would violate human rights and jeopardize the food security of the indigenous Gwich’in people of the US and Canada. It would have detrimental effects on the health and social life of the indigenous Iñupiat people who live nearby. It would also contribute to further warming of the already rapidly-warming Arctic—an action that would affect the whole earth, as the Arctic is a critical integrator of our planet’s climate systems.We are scholars from a wide range of fields—including the arts, the humanities, the sciences, and other areas—united in our opposition to exploration and drilling in the Arctic Refuge Coastal Plain. We urge you to consider the far-reaching biological, cultural, and climate impacts of this decision. We call upon the Department of Interior to continue to protect this vital transnational nursery.

As the ecological heart of the Arctic Refuge, the Coastal Plain provides critical calving and nursing habitat for the Porcupine Caribou Herd. More than 200,000 caribou embark every year on the longest land migration of any animal on earth, journeying from the taiga and boreal forest ecosystems of northeast Alaska and the adjacent northwest Canada to the Coastal Plain, where they calve and nurse their young. Caribou biologists have repeatedly warned that oil development on the Coastal Plain would constitute a grave threat to the health of the herd. In addition to nurturing caribou, the Coastal Plain provides nesting and feeding habitat for millions of migratory birds. Nearly ninety different species travel from all over the world to breed and find nourishment in the Coastal Plain. This area also offers the most important on-shore denning habitat in the US Arctic for polar bears, now listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act, as their traditional sea ice habitat continues to disappear due to climate change.

Oil and gas exploration and drilling would destroy this fragile nursery, covering it with a spider web of roads, drill pads, and pipelines. Such habitat fragmentation on the narrow Coastal Plain, together with the chronic spills of oil and other toxic substances, will inevitably lead to stress, displacement, and population decline for the animals. As we are in the midst of what scientists call the earth’s sixth mass extinction, this critical Arctic nursery needs protection now more than ever.

For the Gwich’in communities on both sides of the US-Canada border, the prospect of drilling represents an existential threat to their cultural survival. The Gwich’in have relied upon the Porcupine Caribou Herd for nutritional, cultural, and spiritual sustenance for millennia. To them, the Coastal Plain is “The Sacred Place Where Life Begins.” Moreover, oil development would emit dangerous levels of toxic pollutants, causing respiratory illnesses and other health problems among Iñupiat people who call the area home.

The Arctic Refuge may be located in northeastern Alaska, but this is a profoundly transnational issue. The Gwich’in Nation is composed of communities situated on both sides of the international boundary. Not only do the caribou know no borders, but the US and Canada signed a bilateral agreement in 1987 to safeguard the transboundary habitat of the Porcupine herd. According to caribou biologists, the entirety of the calving and nursing grounds—stretching from the Arctic Refuge in Alaska through the Ivvavik National Park in the Yukon—should be protected if the herd is to survive and thrive. The Arctic Refuge is also connected globally through the epic migrations of birds from faraway places, including Argentina, Borneo, China, and New Zealand. And, as we are only beginning to understand, some of these species have cultural ties to peoples who live in these areas. We should have the humility to recognize that oil drilling would not only threaten wildlife species but also impact human communities well beyond the Coastal Plain.

As climate change bears down on the Arctic and elsewhere around the world, and as the global community continues to move away from fossil fuels toward renewable energy, the US should aim to become a global leader in the managed decline of fossil fuels extraction. Deciding not to drill in the Arctic Refuge would be a crucial step in this direction.

The Department of Interior’s current action to advance exploration and drilling in the Arctic Refuge Coastal Plain comes only months after oil industry allies in Congress snuck a drilling provision into the unrelated federal Tax Act, circumventing normal legislative channels to get this controversial measure approved. Interior’s fast-tracking of the environmental review process ignores both the human rights of the Gwich’in Nation and the will of the American public, who have for decades urged their elected officials to permanently protect this irreplaceable ecological treasure.

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge must not be auctioned off to the oil industry. Its natural and cultural values far exceed any oil that may lie beneath the Coastal Plain. As scholars from across the United States, Canada, and other parts of the world, we call upon the Department of Interior to support scientific and traditional ecological knowledge, to value environmental ethics and indigenous human rights, and to work to sustain biological nurseries and subsistence practices. We ask that you keep this cherished place and vibrant ecosystem protected for generations to come.
