Oil and gas exploration threaten the majestic beauty and pristine wilderness of Utah's Red Rocks Wilderness. Take action!
Utah has some of the most beautiful and breathtaking scenery America has to offer. With its numerous national parks, and its towering mountains and rock structures, Utah provides stunning views and unique landscapes teeming with life. Utah's Red Rocks park boasts colossal rock spires and beautiful desert wildlife.
But yet again, plans for oil exploration threaten another of America's scenic gems. The Red Rock area stands to be destroyed at the greedy hands of oil and gas companies that care for nothing more than profit alone. They don't care that exploring here would annihilate precious land that has been there for millions of years.
We need to create legislation that would protect this beautiful and pristine landscape. Sign the petition in favor of this legislation and help us stand strong against the oil industry once again.
Dear Sally Jewell, Secretary of the Interior,
Utah's Red Rocks Wilderness is a precious natural gem that is in grave danger. Oil and gas companies are looking to expand their drilling and exploration projects to this vast stretch of land that reaches from Utah into Colorado. They choose to ignore the implications that drilling and exploration would have for wildlife and the natural beauty of this region.
Although the Department of the Interior has previously established significant protections for this wilderness area, the oil giants are persistent and continue to lobby for more drilling. And Bush-era policies that haven't yet expired further threaten America's pristine back country.
We need to pass legislation that would provide Utah's Red Rocks Wilderness with protections and prevent these greedy oil giants from destroying the land with exploration and drilling. I am writing to ask that you support legislation in favor of saving our beautiful wilderness and precious wildlife.
Thank you for your time.
