The 🦅 Town That Beat the 🦕 Fracking Industry

Photo of land near Kanab, Utah that could have been razed for a frac-sand mine by Tara Lohan.

The operation would have started by bulldozing all the trees, shrubs, grasses and forbs, then scraped up to 30 feet of the earth from the exposed surface. The sand would then be processed — washed with water and chemicals, then dried and sorted — in a facility with up to six 120-foot-tall silos. After that it would be loaded into trucks and hauled out.

The 🦅 Town That Beat the 🦕 Fracking Industry

No. 116, Jan. 23, 2020

Hello Revelator readers,

Kanab, Utah, is known for its breathtaking beauty and proximity to national parks, but now the tourist-friendly destination has another claim to fame: Residents just drove a frac-sand mining development out of town. We've been following the story for months — here's what happened.

We also talked to Craig Pittman about his new book on the wild and weird battle to rescue Florida panthers from the brink of extinction and why the big cats aren't out of the woods yet.

Check out our latest video to meet Stevie Nicks, a blind black-footed ferret who's an adorable example of conservation success in action.

Coming up:

Stay tuned for stories about threats from warming ocean waters and what's working to save coral reefs.

Look for our latest links in next Thursday's newsletter — or follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the headlines as they go live.

As always, thank you for reading.
