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 Alaskaโ€™s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

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

In her letter, she said, โ€œIf we violate the Arctic Refuge by extracting the oil beneath the land, this will have devastating impact for the Gwichโ€˜in people.".
