We’re happy to share that this week a federal district court in Tucson put the brakes on the “Sunnyside” project, an exploratory drilling project near Patagonia which would have destructive impacts on threatened species like the jaguar, Mexican spotted owl and ocelot.
The wildlife, water supply and endangered species of the Patagonia Mountains mining projects deserve protection, not pollution.
A new study shows that while the U.S.-Mexico border fence does affect some native species, it does not necessarily restrict the movement of humans. In other words, animals can’t get over or around the wall, but people still can.
A proposed mining project in the Santa Rita Mountains would involve a mile-wide, half mile-deep open pit mine that would cause great damage to habitat for many imperiled species, and dump toxic mining waste on national forest land.
