Protect Coronado National Forest

24 Jan


Dear friend,

Late last year, a jaguar was sighted in Arizona – the first jaguar sighting in the U.S. in 3 years! But now, as jaguars are making their way back to Arizona, new mining exploration could destroy the very habitat that these big cats are seeking.

Will you tell the Forest Service to stand up to foreign mining interests, and protect imperiled wildlife like jaguars and ocelots?

The proposed Rosemont Copper Project in the Coronado National Forest would completely destroy the sky island mountain range and other important wildlife habitat in the region. The mine would take over 4,500-acres in the heart of the National Forest.

Send a message to the Forest Service now and speak up for imperiled wildlife and the homes they count on in the American southwest.

Apart from the 4,500-acre mine, thousands more acres of land will be overtaken by roads needed to access the mine. These roads would even further disrupt important wildlife corridors and likely increase wildlife road kills.

Thanks!
