STOP the Forest Service from Logging Threatened Lynx Habitat!

To be delivered to Dan Jirón, Regional Forester, U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Region and Erin Connelly, Forest Supervisor, Pike and San Isabel National Forest and Cimarron and Comanche National Grasslands

Petition Statement

Canada lynx are medium-sized wild cats that once ranged from Alaska to New Mexico. They have been decimated in the continental U.S. by trapping and logging and are now listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. Yet the Forest Service is authorizing a 12,000-acre logging project in Colorado, including 2,370 acres of clear-cutting in the San Isabel National Forest. Lynx are known to live across 80 percent of the logging area. Denning habitat and passageways critical to maintaining the territory size necessary for the species’ survival will be destroyed. No public comment period will be provided when exact logging locations are revealed. Please sign so that the Forest Service cannot shut out your voice opposing their endangering native animals on our public lands.
There are currently 3,663 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Western Environmental Law Center is a nonprofit, public-interest environmental law firm. We filed suit on April 21, 2015, challenging the Forest Service's lack of consideration for the Tennessee Creek project's impacts on Canada lynx, wolverines, and quiet recreational activities in Colorado. Please stand with us to protect animals on our public lands.
