Letter to the USFS regarding Squaw-Alpine Gondola impacts on Sierra Yellow-legged frog

Last week the Granite Chief Wilderness Protection League wrote to Tahoe National Forest Supervisor, Eli Ilano, about the impacts of the proposed Base-to-Base Gondola which would transect a portion of the Granite Chief Wilderness and its tranquil Five Lakes.

We have requested the USFS and consultants carefully address prudent alternatives to proposed Gondola routes to protect critical habitat for the Sierra yellow-legged frog–an amphibian protected under the Endangered Species Act. The USFS must ensure all proposed routes and alternatives are guided by current scientific knowledge, and furthermore, we believe the USFS should not jeopardize the future health and survival of unique protect species such as Rana sierra.
