We need your help to save Gros Morne

Here is another emailed alert to share and take action on.  This one is from CPAWS:

What we do  |                           Take action  |                           Donate  
Dear Eldy,

Gros Morne National Park is one of the most incredible places I have ever visited in my life. If you’ve been there, I’m sure you would agree. Its landscapes are breathtaking and attract thousands of visitors from around the world every year. The park’s communities are hubs of creativity and full of passionate people who are some of the friendliest and most welcoming people I’ve ever met.

But despite its magnificent beauty, despite the economic value of tourism it brings to the region, and despite its UNESCO World Heritage Site status, the park’s future and its landscapes are being put at risk by oil exploration. We need your help to save Gros Morne.

The park is being threatened by a proposed hydraulic fracturing (fracking) operation. Industrialization and toxic chemicals from this process could contaminate Gros Morne’s water, air and soil, and put the region’s sustainable tourism industry at risk.

Please take a moment to write a short letter to help us stop this proposal from proceeding.

With your help, we can ensure that our families will be able to visit Gros Morne in the future and be struck with the same awe taking in the pristine beauty of the landscape that I was first struck with upon my first visit.

Yours in conservation,

Eric Hebert-Daly National Executive Director, CPAWS
