The Caja del Rio Plateau is a place we are in danger of losing.

It has no protection from development and falls under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.

Lack of management has led to illegal dumping, reckless and unregulated shooting, cattle rustling, poaching of endangered species, illegal wood cutting and rock removal, off-highway vehicle misuse, and vandalism of cultural sites.
