Special interests and their allies in Congress are urging the Trump administration to remove protections for millions of acres of wild public lands and waters—including the 1.3 million acre Bears Ears National Monument in Utah.
Undoing the protection of these wild public lands and the Antiquities Act would be a tragic mistake.
Millions of acres in more than 100 places around our nation are currently protected as national monuments. These beautiful, cherished lands and waters provide essential habitat for vulnerable species—from endangered whales that swim off the Atlantic coast, to elk roaming the Rocky Mountains, to rare seabirds that depend on pacific shorelines.
Urge Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to protect public lands and stand up for our nation’s wildlife.
