BLM: Stop the plan to kill hundreds of endangered Desert Tortoises

To be delivered to Neil Kornze, Principal Deputy Director, BLM

Petition Statement

Stop the plan to kill hundreds of endangered desert tortoises. Keep the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center open, or find appropriate zoo placement for these precious animals. There is NO reason to euthanize!
There are currently 3,691 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The very endangered Desert Tortoise is on the brink of extinction, and the BLM is going to close down one of the only sanctuary facilities that exists for them. They will euthanize any animals that are there when the time comes (they say SOON), and will be euthanizing any that come in as they don't have funding or space. The facility houses hundreds of tortoises. These animals are vital to their ecosystem, our ecosystem. There has to be another answer.
