NRDC Action Fund: Growing the Environmental Majority

Save Big Cypress From Destruction!

Urge Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to stop oil and gas exploration in Florida's Big Cypress National Preserve and save this treasured wildland and our climate.

Big Cypress National Preserve is home to the critically endangered Florida panther and seven other endangered and threatened species. This fragile ecosystem plays a crucial role in keeping clean water flowing into the Everglades and providing safe drinking water for millions of people. Yet, the National Park Service has thrown open the doors to destructive seismic oil and gas exploration to pave the way for possible drilling and fracking across more than 70,000 acres of the Preserve — all without completing a legally required Environmental Impact Statement.

Urge Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to stop oil and gas exploration in Big Cypress and save this treasured wildland and our climate.
