Protect San Juan Islands

From Environment Washington:  If you’ve ever been hiking on Iceberg Point, kayaked within sight of the orca pods off San Juan Island, spotted nesting peregrine falcons on Chadwick Hill, or spent any time on the San Juan Islands at all, you don’t need me to tell you what a special treasure we have in Washington—or how important it is that we protect it.

Yes, I want to protect the San Juan Islands.

Unfortunately, 1,000 acres of pristine wilderness, including special places on San Juan, Orcas, and Lopez islands, are currently vulnerable to mining, drilling, and logging.

President Obama can permanently protect 1,000 acres in the San Juan islands by designating a new national monument — but he’ll only do it if Washingtonians show overwhelming public support.

Click here to tell President Obama that you want the San Juan Islands protected.

Over the years, dedicated islanders have successfully fended off attempts to sell pristine parts of SJI to private development companies. Now, it’s time to win the permanent protections they deserve.

Together, you and I and all of us who love the San Juans can ensure that this wonderful natural refuge remains pristine for all of us to enjoy.

Thanks for being with us,

Katrina Rosen
Environment Washington Field Director
