BLM’s Abandonment of Wilderness Protection
The Facts About “No More Wilderness”
The Administration’s “No More Wilderness” settlement with the State of Utah is leading to the destruction of America’s wild places. In the settlement, the BLM renounced its responsibility to inventory for and protect wilderness values. After disavowing its right to designate Wilderness Study Areas, the Bush Administration promised to protect wilderness values in other ways, but did not do so and instead this misguided policy has continued to jeopardize the public’s wild lands.
