Stop Fracking in Greater Chaco Region
91% of available lands in Northwest New Mexico are already leased to oil and gas development. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is planning to auction off more than 84,000 acres of land in New Mexico to the oil and gas industry this December. This includes more than 43,000 acres in the Greater Chaco region of the northwest New Mexico and 41,000 acres in the southeast New Mexico’s Greater Carlsbad Caverns region.
We need your help!
BLM is only giving the public 10 days (not 30) to issue protest comments, as well as changing the rules these need to be hand delivered or snail mail (not email).
We have until October 30 to get these protest forms to the BLM main office in Santa Fe.
Below is a comment form. Please download, add your voice and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
This PDF form is fillable so, you can complete it digitally and email it back to us.
Your information will be used only as a submission to the BLM office. You will not have your email or any other personal information shared, other than me confirming I’ve received your form.
Email page 2 and 3 only (the one with our comments and name, etc) by October 30th to email@example.com and we will compile these documents and have them hand carried. See the below resources to learn more. BLM continues leasing public and tribal lands for fracking and has approved more than 400 well and counting without meaningful Tribal consultation or analysis of public health, impact on wildlife, and degrade of Chaco’s cultural landscape.
