Arctic Refuge CCP & Wilderness Review: Strong Alaskan and National support for protection

Public hearing testimony and comments showed strong support from Alaskans and across the Nation for protecting Arctic Refuge Coastal Plain and other areas not yet designated as Wilderness. Over 612,000 comments on the CCP overwhelmingly supported protection and no drilling and were received from all 50 states and 135 other countries. Over 500 people atended hearings in Alaska, nearly 200 testified, and most favored protecting the refuge and coastal plain wilderness, with 2:1 in favor in Anchorage and 60% favoring protection in Fairbanks. Support for protecting the coastal plan endorsed by tribal governments, Tanana Chiefs Conference and others. Support for protecting the refuge was voiced by nearly 100 Alaskan businesses, a dozen Alaska based conservation organizations (plus national groups with Alaska offices), and Alaskans commented from 102 different communities.
