Help ban fracking in our national wildlife refuges

Action: Wildlife Conservation

January 29, 2016   Action Alert ID# 330

 

National wildlife refuges provide critical rest stops for migratory birds, are strongholds for imperiled plants and wildlife, and keep millions of acres of wetlands pristine. Unfortunately when some refuges were created the government wasn't able to purchase the oil, gas and other fossil fuels beneath the land. Drilling in these wildlife refuges has destroyed habitat, caused toxic spills, water and air pollution and wildlife deaths.

More than 5,000 oil and gas wells now exist in 107 refuges, and at least 32 more are at risk for future extraction, including via fracking. They include Kenai National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska, Hopper Mountain National Wildlife Refuge in California, Delta National Wildlife Refuge in Louisiana and many refuges in North Dakota's Bakken region.

These places are simply too important to sacrifice to the fossil fuel industry, whose environmental record on these lands is galling.

Help protect our national wildlife refuges by calling on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to ban fracking on lands vital to migratory birds and wildlife.
