Remembering Exxon Valdez

25 years ago, the Exxon Valdez oil tanker ran aground in Prince William Sound, spilling 11 million gallons of crude oil, impacting miles of Alaska's coastline, and killing millions of animals.

The impact of the Exxon Valdez spill was truly horrific. Alaska Native Chief Walter Meganack was later quoted as calling it "the day the water died." Today, 22 of the 24 impacted species have still not fully recovered, including animals like orca whales, sea lions, and dungeness crab.

Stand up for America's Arctic, and tell President Obama not to let it be the site of the next Exxon Valdez.
