Oil on Ice is a rebuttal to Frank Murkowski's claim that there isn't a there there. The Refuge is the feeding and breeding grounds for over 180 species of resident and migratory birds, a herd of 130,000 caribou, all three species of North American bears, plus Dall sheep, muskox, weasels, lemmings, wolves, foxes, wolverine, and porcupine.

Here, we've collected some fact sheets and tools that you can use to help protect the wildlife of the refuge and links that bring this issue home to everyone.
