We have witnessed some inspiring achievements for public lands conservation over the past year, made possible by the tireless and heroic efforts of BLM staff, invested citizens, and our amazing partner groups. The Wilderness Society's BLM Action Center is proud to present the 2012 CAPE Awards – a top ten list of this year’s greatest moments for the spectacular landscapes managed by the BLM.
The Comparative Analysis of Particular Excellence (CAPE) rating system ranges from 1 CAPE on the low end (worth a pat on the back) to 5 CAPEs on the high end (HUGE PROGRESS!!! WAY TO GO!!!).
This year’s list runs the gamut from a revolutionary approach to solar energy development on our public lands to wildland protections in the Arctic Reserve to new and improved management frameworks for our Conservation Lands… and a lot of other great stuff in between!
But the BLM Action Center never rests. We've also compiled a Wish List of our highest priorities for BLM lands in 2013. Click below to download our CAPE Awards and Wish List.
