Overview
Fossil energy development has a greater impact on the ecological integrity of public lands than does any other activity. Two years ago, the Department of Interior issued new guidance to public land managers to ensure important fish and wildlife habitat would not be lost to energy development. Ironically, one of the biggest impediments to implementing this new guidance is the public land managers themselves, who are often entrenched in a fossil energy development viewpoint. This grant would support strategic communications and grassroots outreach to educate these federal bureaucrats about the justification and need for these new habitat protections.
