Protect Our National Monuments

President Trump is dismantling some of America's most cherished national monuments, including Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante in Utah and the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts off the coast of New England. Many more are on the chopping block.

We have never seen such a systematic and devastating assault on our treasured public lands and waters. And now, the president is opening these iconic places up to dirty, dangerous drilling and mining operations for profit.

Bears Ears is already open to oil, gas, and uranium mining companies, threatening the monument’s unparalleled wildlands and wildlife, including 18 endangered species. Trump’s action ignores the voices of the five Tribes that consider Bears Ears their sacred homeland, leaving hundreds of thousands of cultural sites now vulnerable to looting and industrial destruction.

Tell President Trump and Secretary Zinke to stop their assault on our public lands and maintain protections for America's cherished national monuments, public lands, and offshore waters.
