Hollywood actress Julia Roberts has a new crusade in her life – that of trying to save 100,000 acres of wildlife-rich land near her home in New Mexico, from being drilled by big oil companies.

The ErinBrokovich star and hubby Danny Moder are working to save the New Mexico’s wildlife sanctuary, Valle Vidal, from being opened up for drilling.

Roberts said that in a time when so much had already been destroyed, it was important for people to save what was left, especially so that the future generations can lead a better life.

“At a time like the one we’re in right now, where you feel like government and big business are kind of the same thing, people feel like the die is cast.

So much has already been destroyed and done and you can’t go back. Well, we can go forward, in a different way,” Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.

“People think, ‘Well, I won’t be here when the planet implodes. But maybe your grandchildren will, or your great-great grandchildren, or your great-great-great grandchildren. And if you could give them one more day on earth, wouldn’t you do that for them?” she added.
