Protect Big Cypress National Preserve from Drilling!



Big Cypress National Preserve is home to the critically endangered Florida panther and other animals like wood storks, black bears, and tortoises. Its swamps keep clean water flowing into the nearby Everglades.
But this national treasure is threatened by the oil and gas industry’s push to expand drilling in the Preserve—starting with seismic exploration.
Seismic testing would trample vegetation and wetlands, make a lot of noise, and cause pollution. The result? Damage of a unique, fragile ecosystem and reduced access for visitors.
But despite the high stakes, the National Park Service (NPS) refuses to thoroughly study the risks, instead relying on loose promises by the oil company that they won’t do any harm. NPS issued a revised, general plan but still won’t conduct a full Environmental Impact Statement. NPS is only allowing comments through April 9th and appears willing to approve seismic testing—so please don't delay!
