Online petition seeks to secure Guam's natural resources

A new campaign is launched today aimed at protecting the natural and cultural resources of Guam land identified for the military's live-fire training range. The action group Prutehi Litekyan: Save Ritidian oppose the establishment of any military firing range and started an online petition and letter campaign to elected officials urging them to not sign the Integrated Natural Resource Management Plan.
This plan would allow for the construction of the Live-Fire Training range Complex at Andersen Air Force Base. The group hopes elected leaders will ensure the utmost protection of endangered species and ancestral and historic sites like Litekyan and Urunao along with Pagan and Tinian and our Northern Guam Lens Aquifer.
Along with the online petition, the group will hold its first community wave this Friday March 3rd from 4:30pm to 6pm at the Chief Kepuha Loop in Hagatna.
