Is Wyoming’s Red Desert region going to be developed for gas and oil?



  1. 0 Votes

    Environmentalists and local residents have been fighting hard to stop oil and gas development in the Red Desert area, and have made progress on in some cases while encountering obstacles in others.  Last month the Bureau of Land Management suspended moving ahead on drilling permits in “Adobe Town” – one of the most spectacular natural areas in the Red Desert.  This is a significant victory for environmental groups, but proposals for increased drilling still seem to be moving forward in other parts of the Red Desert, and the work of environmentalists to protect this region is far from over.  The Red Desert is valuable natural area partly because it is one of the last intact high desert ecosystems left in the US.  It is home to many wildlife species, as well as spectacular natural rock formations.

    There has been significant oil and gas production from the Red Desert region for decades.
