It is shocking that this national park is just one of many that are faced with situations such as this. It’s heartbreaking to know that generations after mine will not be able to appreciate nature as I do. I understand that the world undergoes many important changes for our economy and such but such changes are destroying homes of animals and the nature scene.

I am often caught considering the values of our nation, especially when those values place resource extraction and short term gains over the conservation of our natural world. Individuals who see a natural area purely for its resource extraction values and monetary gains need to rethink their priorities. There is no amount of money that can recreate the wonders created in nature and once they are gone they can never be replaced at the same quality. Fracking operations are threatening natural ecosystems and need to be reined in to less intrusive levels (I am not crazy enough to think it can all just go away, unfortunately that just isn’t going to happen any time soon).
