Tell the BLM: Don't Frack Our Public Wildlands
California's wildlife and biodiversity urgently need your help. On Dec. 12 the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will put more than 17,000 acres of California public wildlands up for auction and throw it open to oil and natural gas drilling and fracking.
Fracking hurts both people and wildlife. It threatens our climate by releasing large quantities of methane and makes previously inaccessible fossil fuels available for combustion.
The BLM plans to auction off the rights to drill and frack our public land. The Center for Biological Diversity is organizing a creative protest to tell the BLM: "Don't Frack Our Public Wildlands," and we want you to join us.
