For the last 10 years, Rocky Mountain Wild has been watchdogging the oil and gas industry to ensure responsible development that does not detrimentally impact the health of our ecosystems and native species. If development of a parcel will negatively impact a rare or imperiled species, the organization engages in the system by submitting comments and protests to have the parcel deferred from the lease sale. As of this week, Rocky Mountain Wild has successfully engaged in efforts to have over 2 million acres of public lands deferred from lease sales!
A federal court here yesterday ruled in favor of conservation groups in their challenge to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s decision to deny Endangered Species Act protection to two imperiled wildflowers that live only on oil shale formations in Colorado and Utah.
By taking action, you will help to ensure that future generations have the opportunity to enjoy watching the Gunnison sage-grouse dance at sunrise, and benefit all of the other species that call this area home.
