2012 Success

Grantee:  The Campaign to Save Roan Plateau

Result: 55,000 acres protected from oil & gas development

Conservation Alliance funding supported The Campaign to Save Roan Plateau for their efforts to secure lasting protection for the Roan Plateau’s undeveloped public lands from oil & gas drilling.  In June of 2012, a federal judge ruled failure of the BLM to consider environmental impacts from the opening the top of the Roan Plateau to drilling and failed to consider alternative plans, such as protecting the outstanding natural values on the Roan.  This ruling temporarily halts oil and gas development on 55,000 acres of public land.
