Utah: Reject Proposed Highway Through Red Cliffs

And help save imperiled desert tortoises.

In southwest Utah, Red Cliffs National Conservation Area protects striking public lands and some of the last, best habitat for imperiled Mojave desert tortoises.

But now county officials are pressuring the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to undercut tortoise protections so they can bulldoze a four-lane highway right through it all. Despite public outrage, failed legislation, and alternatives that would do far less damage, the backers of the highway remain defiant in their pursuit of the Red Cliffs route.

Please stand up for this desert jewel and the wildlife that call it home. Send a letter to the agencies insisting that they reject this proposal to build a highway through Red Cliffs.
