A very well-done video that I found on the NY Times site. As natural gas development “explodes” across the country, it’s apparent to all but industry that more regulation is desperately needed.
Friday, March 11 is the deadline for comments about the planned PXP gas drilling development in the Upper Hoback. I’ve been advocating here for protection of this special place since I launched the blog in October and have shared images with the Wyoming Outdoor Council, The Wilderness Society, and Citizens For The Wyoming Range.
If you’ve watched the video and still wonder why this place matters, just answer a simple question: Is it acceptable to drill (on an industrial scale) in Yellowstone? It’s your land, and if it’s taken, it’s gone for good. Simple. So just go to the Citizens For The Wyoming Range site and send one of the sample letters to Jacqueline Buchanan, Supervisor of the Bridger Teton National Forest. The letters and link are all there – add your name to the record number of comments protesting a plan to destroy a place that’s too special to drill. Thank you.
I just launched my first You Tube “video” to share imagery and information about my conservation project in the American West. This multimedia piece came together over a few months and I’m grateful to the Emmitt-Nershi Band for allowing me to use their song “Surfing The Red Sea”. Thanks for adding rhythm to make my image presentation flow! Thanks to Jenny Nichols at ILCP for sharing your multi-media genius. The aerial images were made with support from LightHawk on a mission with conservation pilot Chris Boyer. Support from LightHawk and others is a crucial piece in the conservation project puzzle; and Sage Spirit needs financial support to continue and work as a tool to fully integrate the great conservation work across the West. Please contact me if you’re interested in supporting the Sage Spirit project in a tax deductible way. Continue reading “Sage Spirit Conservation Project”
