Stop the fossil fuel industry from bulldozing this roadless national forest

Action: Wildlife Conservation

August 18, 2016   Action Alert ID# 412

 

Right now, you can help save pristine roadless forest in Colorado by telling the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to protect the White River National Forest from drilling.

The BLM has proposed to cancel 25 illegally issued oil and gas leases. But under heavy pressure from the billion-dollar oil and gas industry, the agency has proposed to drop its plan—proposed late last year—to add protections to 27 other leases.

We need you to fight for our roadless wilderness NOW. Tell the BLM to stand up to the oil and gas companies and protect the forest lands in all 65 of the leases from illegal drilling.

By making the right decisions, the BLM could protect tens of thousands of acres of pristine roadless lands in 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 Colorado 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 agency from fully correcting its mistakes, so your voice is needed.

Urge the BLM to protect the White River National Forest now! 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.

Take action: Tell the BLM to cancel all of the illegal leases on the Thompson Divide and protect the nearby lands in the White River National Forest.
