Part 1 of a 3 part video on the impacts of Federal Wilderness Designation for ranching operations in Dona Ana County, New Mexico.
Federal Wilderness is not what it seems on the surface. Wilderness designation is about restricting and eliminating access to areas.
Motorized vehicles and mechanized equipment are PROHIBITED, impacting not only ranching, but law enforcement, National Security, flood control and water management projects, conservation efforts, hunting and all forms of recreation. Even bicycles are prohibited.
Know the facts. Wilderness designation is NOT about protecting the land. It is about removing people FROM the land.
