Why it helps: the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is one of the most prolific bird nurseries on Earth. Every year, birds migrate through fifty American states and six continents to raise their chicks in its pristine habitat. The biological heart of the Refuge — and vital nesting ground for Tundra Swans, Northern Pintails, American Golden-Plovers and more — is a 1.5-million-acre region between the Arctic Ocean and the mountains, known as the coastal plain. The President’s just-released budget calls for opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling, and Congress could soon follow suit.
