Protect the Big Bend From the Trans-Pecos Pipeline!

To be delivered to President Donald Trump

Petition Statement

The Big Bend is one of the last remaining intact bioregions in the U.S., and it is too important to endanger by approving the massive, invasive Trans-Pecos Pipeline. I urge you to oppose this proposed project.

This project threatens critical habitat and water resources, disrupts sensitive desert ecosystems and creates significant risk to the long-term welfare of the region. A pipeline of this magnitude promises to promote widespread drilling and fracking.

Please consider the impacts this pipeline would have on the Big Bend economy, the environment, and the safety of the region and its population, and don't approve the Trans-Pecos Pipeline.
There are currently 1,269 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The proposed Trans-Pecos Pipeline would move natural gas across the vast Big Bend region of Texas to Mexico. This pipeline, backed by the oil and gas industry and big investment banks, would endanger the natural beauty of this pristine, untouched region, threaten the safety of the surrounding rural communities and pave the way for even more pipelines, fracking and oil extraction in the U.S. and Mexico — contributing to climate change.
