Alaska North Slope Iñupiats Support Reasonable Development of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR)
Point Hope, AK – Voice of the Arctic Iñupiat (VOICE) announced its support for opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to drilling. The board of directors passed the resolution officially backing safe and responsible development in the refuge, specifically the 1002 coastal plain area, that represents eight percent of total ANWR acreage.
With this announcement, VOICE joins the Alaska delegation, the Governor, the leadership of the North Slope Borough, the majority of Arctic village leadership and the overwhelming majority of Alaskans in calling for resource production in a small portion of the Arctic refuge.
Voice of the Arctic Iñupiat (VOICE) is a 501(c)4 nonprofit organization established to provide direct input from the Iñupiat people in matters of Arctic policy. VOICE’s membership includes 20 of the 28 entities from across the North Slope including tribal councils, municipal governments and Alaska Native corporations.
