Hello fellow bird protectors!
Again, the Greater Sage Grouse stands to lose an important lek in Utah. Please sign the petition to help convince the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to reject the Alton Coal Mine Expansion Project Proposal. http://www.thepetitionsite.com/841/853/265/stop-the-alton-coal-mine-expansion-project/
My friend, and fellow falcon watch team member, Rahul Mukherjee is working to protect the Alton Sink Valley Lek, which is contained within the project area. Alton’s proposal would destroy approximately 3,500 acres of Utah‘s public lands and would negatively impact the wildlife, air and water quality, local economies, and regional tourism. More than 200,000 individuals sent in comments but we believe that a petition would serve as a good supplement. The effectiveness of this petition lies in the numbers so we need all the support we can get. You can read more details about the petition and the proposal at the above link. Thank you!!
