Save Desert Tortoises From Mining in the Mojave

Action: Wildlife Conservation

November 7, 2014   Action Alert ID# 165

 

Deep in the furnace of the Mojave Desert, Coolgardie Mesa is home to a surprising abundance of wildlife. Desert tortoises roam the land in search of food, and an incredible variety of shrubs and plants provide niche habitat for persistent critters.

Tortoise populations, however, are in continuing decline due to a variety of competing land uses, including mining. That's why the Center for Biological Diversity has been pushing for years for a formal mining "withdrawal" on these acres.

Prior to 2006 the Center fought hard to protect Coolgardie Mesa in the West Mojave Plan, which designated this land an area of critical environmental concern. And since the plan's adoption, we have continued to prod the BLM to move forward with its withdrawal proposal, which is at last coming to fruition.

Please sign our letter to show your support of the BLM's mining withdrawal as well as its efforts to conserve the natural wonders at Coolgardie Mesa.
