Keep fracking out of the Wayne National Forest

Action: Wildlife Conservation

January 30, 2017   Action Alert ID# 471

 

This past December the Bureau of Land Management auctioned hundreds of acres in southeast Ohio's Wayne National Forest to oil and gas developers, opening up these beautiful public lands to large-scale fracking for the very first time. The Center for Biological Diversity and local groups are actively working to invalidate this lease sale, but in the meantime the BLM and U.S. Forest Service already plan to auction another 1,100 acres in March in the Wayne's Marietta Unit, near the Ohio River and its tributaries.

Please join us in sending a strong message to these agencies that our public lands are not sacrifice zones. What plays out in Ohio could have huge implications for surrounding states.

If fracking is allowed in the Wayne, it will industrialize one of the few public forests in Ohio and threaten precious water supplies -- including the Ohio River, a drinking water source for millions of people. Fracking also endangers our climate and will degrade habitat for imperiled species like the Indiana bat, which is already struggling against habitat loss, white-nose syndrome and climate change.

Act now to urge the BLM and Forest Service to cancel the March lease auction and end new oil and gas leasing in the Wayne. Fracking has no place in our public forests.
