National parks are the crown jewels of America's public lands system. But when certain parks were created, the government wasn't able to also purchase the oil, gas and other fossil fuels located beneath the land.
That's why there are currently 12 national park units with active oil and gas operations, and another 30 are at risk for future extraction, including via fracking. They include treasures like Florida's Big Cypress National Preserve (where rare panthers find refuge from encroaching urbanization), Everglades National Park in Florida, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in Utah, the Grand Tetons in Wyoming, Dinosaur National Monument in Colorado and Utah, Aztec Ruins National Monument in New Mexico, Big Thicket National Preserve in Texas and many more.
These places are simply too important to sacrifice to the fossil fuel industry.
Help us protect our natural treasures by banning any future non-federal oil and gas development on lands administered by the National Park Service.
