Teshekpuk Lake, Oil and Gas, and the BLM

We blogged last week about Teshekpuk Lake in the Arctic. Now comes the news that the public comment period on the BLM’s latest attempt to open the area for oil and gas exploration is about to expire.

Here is an explanation of the plan and what you can do to help protect the Lake, if you are so inclined. The draft letter suggested by the Audubon Society is pretty good but remember to re-write it so it isn’t just a cookie-cutter letter. The geese and loons will thank you for your effort.
