Sign the petition to protect 12 special wild places from drilling

Across America, there are some places too wild to drill. Places that have such iconic beauty that they should not be opened to oil and gas drilling.

Yet, right at this moment, there are 12 such wild places – national parks, refuges and recreation spots -  all threatened by oil and gas development.

These 12 wild places are currently threatened by oil and gas drilling plans:

  1. Arches National Park, Utah
  2. Chaco Canyon, New Mexico
  3. The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska
  4. Desolation Canyon, Utah
  5. Dinosaur National Monument, Colorado
  6. The George Washington National Forest, Virginia,
  7. Los Padres National Forest, California
  8. North Fork of the Flathead, Montana
  9. Otero Mesa, New Mexico
  10. Thompson Divide, Colorado
  11. Red Desert, Wyoming
  12. The Wyoming Range, Wyoming

Please sign our petition asking the Department of the Interior and Members of Congress to protect these American treasures.

Tell them that these 12 places should be protected for future generations – not dotted with oil wells and crisscrossed with roads and pipelines.

Please protect places too wild to drill

Dear [Decision Maker],

Across America, there are some places too wild to drill.

Places like the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the Wyoming Range and Arches National Park. Places that have such iconic beauty that they should not be opened to oil and gas drilling.

According to recent polling, 76% of Americans agree that some places are just too special to drill. I am one of those people.

The mountain peaks of Colorado's Thompson Divide, the rivers of the Greater Dinosaur region, and the headwaters of the Potomac River in the George Washington National Forest are places that should be protected for their natural splendor not dotted with oil wells and crisscrossed with roads and pipelines.

I support protecting places that are too wild to drill and I hope you will too by ensuring that your future decisions about oil and gas drilling are balanced and protective of our most special places.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
