With the help of concerned community members like you, the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance and Coalition for Otero Mesa have waged a successful 10-year campaign to prevent oil and gas drilling on Otero Mesa, New Mexico’s wildest desert grassland. Now a mining company has staked dozens of mining claims on parts of the mesa that we’ve proposed for wilderness and Area of Critical Environmental Concern designation – putting wildlife, cultural, and water resources in grave danger. It’s time to give permanent protection to this spectacular landscape, before we lose it forever.
Use the form below to write in your own words to President Obama. Ask him to designate Otero Mesa a national monument before it is too late to protect this amazing place!
