The Obama administration decided on Friday to back a proposal to allow nearly 1,300 new oil and gas drilling wells in Utah’s Desolation Canyon region, impacting over 200,000 acres of wildlands. The sheer scope of the project, if approved, will have untold negative and permanent impacts on this wild region’s incredible beauty.
Got a minute to help stop this? Send a message to the administration and the Department of Interior that they must stand strong in protecting wilderness lands like Desolation Canyon.
