Call to Action: The Nevada Desert Needs Your Help!

The Searchlight Desert and Mountains is a pristine area containing one of the largest concentrations of desert tortoises and golden eagles in Nevada.

Please take a moment to sign this petition requesting the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to designate the desert and mountains around Searchlight, Nevada as an Industrial Wind Energy Free Zone in the Southern Nevada Resource Management Plan.

“Wind energy has had negative impacts on golden eagles, killing birds in locations like Altamont, California where approximately 70 eagles are killed each year, and Spring Valley, Nevada where that state’s first industrial wind project has already killed two eagles in just three years of operation,” states Basin & Range Watch, the originators of the petition.

Please do your part to help protect this important area. Click link below to sign the petition:
