Wild Utah: America’s Red Rock Wilderness
This 14-minute short documentary is our centerpiece advocacy film for Utah’s last remaining wild places. With stunning videography, it takes the viewer through magnificent red rock landscapes and draws upon diverse voices to explain why these lands are worth protecting from the threats of fossil fuel extraction, off-road vehicle damage, hardrock mining, and anti-wilderness legislation from Utah’s own politicians.

The Bureau of Land Management is Planning the Future of Utah Wilderness
The Bureau of Land Management is making plans that will impact how Utah’s wild lands will look and sound for decades to come through what are known as “Travel Management Plans.” These plans will impact more than 6 million acres of public lands in Utah as the BLM decides where to allow motorized vehicles in some of Utah’s most stunning and remote wild lands, such as the Dirty Devil, San Rafael Swell and Labyrinth Canyon.

Don’t Let Utah Politicians Wreck the San Rafael Swell
In response to an anti-conservation bill introduced on May 9, 2018 by Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch and Rep. John Curtis that would enshrine motorized recreation and undermine existing protections in Utah’s San Rafael Swell and Desolation and Labyrinth Canyons, SUWA released a statewide television ad campaign to raise awareness about the impacts of the bill. Learn more and take action at suwa.org/swell.
Chaining on Utah’s Public Lands
SUWA launched a statewide television and online media campaign in Utah to focus public attention on the Bureau of Land Management’s destructive practice of “chaining” native pinyon and juniper forests to create more forage for cattle on public lands. Learn more at suwa.org/chaining.
