Protect our western wildlands! February 21, 2006 12:50 PM
Dear NRDC BioGems Defender,
The Bush administration wants to escalate logging, oil exploration and grazing
in our last unspoiled western wildlands by cutting the public out of the review
We need your immediate action to help block this reckless proposal, which would
have devastating impacts for the fragile Redrock Wilderness and other
outstanding BioGem wildlands across the West.
Go to http://www.savebiogems.org/redrock/takeaction.asp?step=2&item=53340
and tell the Bureau of Land Management to abide by the law and let concerned
citizens participate in the debate over the future of these natural treasures.
And please send your message immediately. The BLM is taking comments only until
By silencing the public's voice, the BLM would clear the way for 60,000-
pound "thumper trucks" in search of oil and gas to crash through the Redrock
desert, marring its delicate soils and destroying crucial habitat for
pronghorns and bighorn sheep.
Unbridled grazing and logging in this region and throughout our
Yellowstone/Greater Rockies BioGem would also take a disastrous toll, laying
waste to streams and native forests.
Please go to
and demand that the Bureau of Land Management cease this unlawful attack on our
right to speak out for our nation's most spectacular wildlands and wildlife. At
the same time, urge the agency to extend the comment period for this important
issue by another 30 days.
Thank you for taking action to protect our western BioGems.
