The world's greatest wild salmon fishery - in Alaska's Bristol Bay - is at risk!  And, you can help.

Alaskans are asking Signet, the world's largest jewelry corporation to promise not to use gold from the proposed Pebble Mine - a massive copper gold mine that threatens the world's most valuable wild salmon fishery. Over fifty major jewelers have already promised.

In a full page ad in the New York Times, Alaska Native communities, commercial fishermen and Earthworks are asking Signet to help support protection of Bristol Bay.

Please join these efforts! Take a few minutes to click on this alert, and e-mail the company.

What better way for Signet to show it supports responsible gold sourcing principles than for the world's largest jeweler to promise that it won't buy gold from a mine that would jeopardize the world's greatest wild salmon fishery.
