Overview
The New Venture Fund’s Western Energy Project seeks to protect ecologically important public lands in the Rocky Mountain West threatened by fossil energy leasing and development. This renewal grant will support the Project’s efforts to secure oil and gas leasing plans in four Western states that protect 3 million acres of fragile land, and ensure that 30 million acres of land critical to sage grouse survival are set off limits to energy development. In addition, the Project seeks new regulations to protect public health that limit the amount of methane that can be released into the atmosphere.
