Overview
The Resources Legacy Fund’s Western Energy Project seeks to protect ecologically important public lands in the Rocky Mountain West that are 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 and defend already adopted plans from being weakened. The project will also defend gains made on 30 million acres of land critical to sage grouse survival that were set off-limits to energy development, as well as regulations that limit the amount of methane that can be released into the atmosphere.
