FracTracker Alliance supports groups across the United States addressing pressing extraction-related concerns, with a lens toward health effects and exposure risks on communities from oil and gas development. We provide timely and provocative data, groundbreaking analyses, maps, and other visual tools to help advocates, researchers, and the concerned public better understand the harms posed by hydrocarbon extraction.
