We’re reaching a critical point in the fight to protect wildlife from dirty tar sands oil.

Big Oil has convinced some members of Congress to try to overrule President Obama’s decision to reject the Keystone XL pipeline–a project that would drive a massive expansion of habitat-destroying tar sands operations and pose unacceptable risks along its route to wildlife like the endangered whooping crane.

As early as this week, the U.S. Senate could vote on legislation to try and resurrect this dangerous project.

Our decision makers need to be reminded of the threats this project would pose to our wildlife and communities. They need to see the images of Americans from all walks of life standing up against this dangerous project. You can help.

On Facebook?

Share the “Stop the Keystone XL Pipeline” pinboard on Facebook to help spread the word far and wide that Americans from all walks of life have taken a stand against the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline.
