Ninety-one percent of the area around Chaco Canyon in New Mexico has already been handed over to Big Oil and Gas, but the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is holding yet another lease sale to offer up even more land close to Chaco for potential oil and gas drilling
BLM: Stop drilling near Chaco Canyon!
The Bureau of Land Management is holding yet another lease sale of even more land close to Chaco Canyon for potential oil and gas drilling. The proposed plan targets indigenous communities’ resources and sacred sites, threatens a World Heritage Site, and endangers the health and safety of the Chaco Canyon community.
We need to pressure the Bureau of Land Management to protect this unique region, the surrounding communities and their natural and cultural resources.
Chaco Culture National Historical Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the ancestral home to many tribal nations of the Southwest. The greater Chaco area is a community suffering greatly from the impacts of the oil and gas industry.1
The BLM’s proposed plan will further target indigenous communities’ resources and sacred sites, pose a safety and health threat to the people who live on the surrounding land, and alter the quality and nature of this pristine landscape forever
Tell the BLM to stop drilling near Chaco Canyon!
