The Greater Chaco region of northwest New Mexico is under siege by more fracking and more broken promises.
The Greater Chaco Landscape is home to Chaco Culture National Historical Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and ancestral pueblo kivas and dwellings. Pueblo people maintain a living and spiritual connection to the landscape and the region sustains Navajo and New Mexico communities.
Unfortunately, a new plan by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management would open the door for more than 3,000 new oil and gas wells, threatening the cultural integrity of the landscape, communities and health, and clean air and water. Despite promising to protect the region, the agency wants to sacrifice it to the fossil fuel industry.
Take action today to defend Greater Chaco!
