19,541 Signatures: Silence from Bud Light
May 20, 2016 — 19,541. That is the number of individuals who joined our petition, asking that corporate partners pull their funding to the travel bloggers* who went into the restricted areas of Yellowstone National Park.
19,541 people signed the petition because they know that the ability to enjoy our national parks comes with a responsibility to protect them.
Progress: Since we launched this petition a few days ago, a number of the group’s “corporate partners” have been in touch. Red Bull, Coco Pure, and Blueprint told us that while they’ve worked with the group in the past, they were not affiliated with this specific trip. Some of these partners expressed outrage at the group’s behavior. And because of your support, it is all but certain they won’t be subsidizing their reckless travel in the future.
Sadly, Bud Light, another “corporate partner,” has remained silent. Press inquiries have gone unanswered. Posts to their Facebook page have been deleted.

We will send an update once we hear from Bud Light.
