Penn State University warns of Marcellus Shale’s effect on wildlife
Pennsylvania State University is an institution that accepts large amounts of funding from the oil and gas industry, but researchers there at the school have concerns too.
Last week Penn State officials stated that, ” The location of a Marcellus Shale drilling pad site could mean the difference between life or extinction for some of Pennsylvania’s unique wildlife”.
“People here care about our wildlife, resources and outdoor recreation. Sure, there’s a lot of value in the natural gas below ground but there’s plenty of value in what’s above ground, too,” said Penn State wildlife resources professor Margaret C. Brittingham.
