The oil-versus-wildlife debate is particularly relevant on Alaska’s North Slope, a rich swath of tundra that is home to an abundance of wildlife and 48 billion barrels of oil. The North Slope is the largest intact wilderness in the United States, offering grand vistas and uninterrupted views of native wildlife, such as caribou. Oil companies drilling in Prudhoe Bay plan to expand their operations throughout the region. In his talk, Sartore discusses what he has learned about this fragile wilderness and the importance of saving these increasingly rare and beautiful areas.
