Goal: 25,000 Progress: 12,299
Sponsored by: National Parks Conservation Association

Meridian Energy Group's proposal to build a 55,000-barrel-a-day oil refinery just 3 miles from the border of Theodore Roosevelt National Park is a direct threat to the park’s air quality, scenic views and night skies, and dishonors President Roosevelt's conservation legacy. But it's not too late to speak up and tell Meridian NO!

Currently, Meridian is working on getting the necessary permits to begin construction of the refinery. National Parks Conservation Association needs your help to ensure this refinery is not built within view of President Roosevelt's namesake national park.

Please tell Meridian Energy Group CEO William Prentice to find another location for the refinery.

Dear Mr. Prentice,

Theodore Roosevelt National Park stands as a testament to our country's conservation legacy and the very president who helped shape it. Building an oil refinery at the doorstep of a national park threatens the air quality, park views, night skies, natural soundscape, cultural heritage and other resources that make this inspiring place worthy of national park status.

I urge you to protect these resources and immediately rescind your company's proposal to develop a refinery within view of Theodore Roosevelt's namesake park. You can find a more suitable location in North Dakota. Large-scale industrial development does not belong next to a national park. I am sure you care about America's natural and cultural heritage as much as I do. I hope you will reconsider the significance of this storied landscape and relocate your refinery to a more suitable location where Theodore Roosevelt National Park will not be affected.
