TRCP applauds federal plan for National Petroleum Reserve

The Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership recently praised the responsible approach the Department of the Interior plans to take in developing the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska. The plan, announced by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, acknowledges both valuable energy resources and fish and wildlife populations and habitat.  
“America’s ‘last frontier’ can remain the wild and wildlife-rich place that so many sportsmen treasure while still providing for our nation’s energy needs through this responsible development approach,” said TRCP President and CEO Whit Fosburgh.
Located on Alaska’s North Slope, the nearly 23 million-acre reserve is the single-largest block of federally managed land in the United States. It is especially important to sportsmen because it contains unique and valuable habitat for fish and wildlife, including millions of migratory birds, and Alaska’s largest caribou herd.
