Amongst shallow wetland habitats, you might find a Blanding’s turtle, a timid creature that hibernates in muddy bottoms and nests in grassy uplands. But their remaining habitat is being drained, fragmented, and converted to agriculture—in part because of federal incentives to grow corn and soy for fuel!
Last month, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed an increase in mandated biofuel production. But growing corn for ethanol has already caused the destruction of huge swaths of grassland habitat and increasing corn and soy biofuel targets will trigger further environmental harm and devastation.
Help Blanding’s turtles survive by telling the Environmental Protection Agency to DEFEND, not destroy native wetland and grassland habitat.
