Stop the fossil fuel industry from bulldozing White River National Forest

Action: Wildlife Conservation

December 14, 2015   Action Alert ID# 310

 

Right now, you can help save pristine forest in Colorado by telling the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to cancel 65 illegally issued oil and gas leases in the White River National Forest.

The BLM just proposed canceling 25 of these illegal leases. However, 40 other illegal leases would not be canceled, and the billion-dollar fossil fuel industry is using all of its tricks to make sure it can drill wherever it wants.

By making the right decisions, the BLM could protect tens of thousands of acres of pristine lands on the Thompson Divide and nearby areas—critical habitat for lynx, bears, peregrine falcons and roughly 300 other animal species.

The agency initiated this process after years of advocacy by residents, local government officials, our client Wilderness Workshop and Earthjustice. Because of our work, the BLM has acknowledged that the 65 oil and gas leases were issued without complying with federal environmental laws. But the fossil fuel industry is using its lobbying muscle to prevent the BLM from finalizing this proposal, so your voice is needed.

These lands contain some of the last undisturbed forests in Colorado and provide important habitat for wildlife, unparalleled backcountry recreation, and clean water for people in local communities.

Tell the BLM to cancel all of the illegal leases on the Thompson Divide and nearby areas in the White River National Forest.
