Projekt Westarktis


YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!
Entscheide mit über die Zukunft der Westarktis.

Engagiere dich und schreibe eine E-Mail für den Yukon!

Deine Stimme zählt! Die Three Rivers Region, ein unberührtes arktisches Wildnisgebiet so groß wie Irland braucht deine Hilfe. Die Regierung des Yukon Territoriums steht kurz davor, die Region an Bergbaukonzerne zu vergeben mit dramatischen Folgen für die Tier- und Pflanzenwelt in einer der größten unberührten Bergregionen der Welt. Bergbauunternehmen haben ihre Anzahl an Claims (Explorationsgenehmigungen) in den letzten drei Jahren von 2.000 auf mehr als 10.000 gesteigert.

Jede Stimme hilft! Die Regierung wird dir Gehör schenken, denn die meisten Touristen im Yukon kommen aus Deutschland.

Key messages you can use
The Peel River Watershed is a Canadian jewel and a treasure to the world.

  • I ask you to provide full protection of the ENTIRE PEEL RIVER WATERSHED including the Snake River, the Wind River, the Bonnet Plume River, the Hart River, the Blackstone River, and the Ogilvie River
  • the Peel Watershed is a boreal mountain wilderness of international significance –therefore I ask you not to allow any habitat fragmentation in the region, I ask you not to allow ANY industrial development including roads, landing strips or rail development
  • I do not want mines or mineral exploration and development in the Peel River Watershed; above all I ask you urgently that no uranium mining be allowed in the watershed, this would contaminate the water, the soil, as well as plant and animal life for generations to come
  • I ask you not to permit any iron ore, copper, coalbed methane, oil and gas exploration and development ANYWHERE in the Peel watershed
  • I want the waters from all the Rivers in the watershed to remain as clean as they are today, drinkable and free of pollution for people and animals
  • I want the Peel Watershed to remain an undisturbed wilderness area with its ecological integrity intact. The First Nations people use this area for their traditional lifestyle. Eco-tourists come to enjoy its unique natural beauty. Caribou, grizzly bears, wolves, peregrine falcons, and wolverine live in harmony as they have for millenia in one of the last true remaining wilderness areas on the planet.
  • I pledge that you do not repeat the mistakes our ancestors made in Germany. Today we have no wilderness areas left, no primeval forest, no place larger than 40 km2 without a road. We love Canada because you have it all – undisturbed forests, free-ranging wildlife, herds of caribou, wilderness areas to enjoy and safeguard for future generations.

Ende deines Briefes: Sincerely, Yours …
