Safeguard Red River Gorge From Rampant Deforestation

Target: Rebecca Goodman, Secretary of the Kentucky Department for Natural Resources

Goal: Preserve the unique biodiversity and natural beauty of Red River Gorge.

Red River Gorge, a natural wonder in Kentucky, faces an existential threat from human activities. Rampant deforestation, littering, and illegal camping are eroding its unique biodiversity and geological formations. This isn’t just a local issue; it’s a crisis that could rob future generations of a natural treasure.

The degradation of this wilderness area has reached a critical point. Native flora and fauna are in decline, and the unique sandstone arches and cliffs are at risk. Moreover, the area serves as a vital watershed, and its degradation could lead to water quality issues that extend beyond the gorge itself.

Economic repercussions loom large too. The gorge attracts tourists and outdoor enthusiasts, contributing significantly to local economies. Neglecting its preservation could result in a decline in tourism revenue, affecting local livelihoods.

Sign the petition below, urging the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources to take swift, comprehensive action for the conservation of Red River Gorge. Implementing policies like strict littering fines, sustainable tourism guidelines, and active reforestation is crucial for the long-term well-being of this natural sanctuary.


Dear Secretary Goodman,

The urgency of safeguarding Red River Gorge’s natural splendor and unique biodiversity can’t be overstated. Human activities are rapidly degrading this irreplaceable treasure, and the time for decisive action has arrived.

We beseech you to roll out and enforce a comprehensive conservation strategy. This plan should include stringent littering penalties, guidelines for sustainable tourism, and an aggressive reforestation program. Such measures are non-negotiable for the long-term survival of the gorge’s unique ecosystems.

Ignoring this issue will only amplify the environmental and economic damage. The gorge serves not just as a tourist attraction but also as a vital watershed and habitat for numerous species. Its degradation poses a threat to water quality and biodiversity far beyond its boundaries.

We urge you to act with utmost dedication and swiftness in implementing conservation measures that will ensure the gorge remains a sanctuary for both nature and people for generations to come.
