Wochit Headline News - November 15, 2017

On Tuesday, British primatologist Jane Goodall sent a letter to every U.S. senator, urging them to oppose a push in the U.S.

Congress to allow oil drilling in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

The region is a coastal plain inhabited by the Gwich‘in natives, caribou herds, and millions of migrating birds.

In her letter, she said, “If we violate the Arctic Refuge by extracting the oil beneath the land, this will have devastating impact for the Gwich‘in people.".
