Protecting Our Pecos from Mining

American Rivers has released its 2021 Most Endangered Rivers report and lists the Pecos River as one of the nation's most endangered, in large part due to a proposed exploratory drilling operation by Australian corporation New World Resources. We are calling on state leaders to deny the company's exploratory mining permit and to approve an Outstanding National Resource Waters designation to protect the Upper Pecos Watershed for future generations.
