Trump and Secretary of the Interior are scheming to shrink our national monuments, and they’ll be successful unless you say no.
The petition from The Nature Conservancy states:
Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah is home to vast sandstone canyons, towering buttes, juniper forests, and one of the most significant archaeological areas in the U.S. This region includes an alarming number of cultural sites, including some that are sacred to the nearby Hopi, Navajo, Ute, and other Native American tribes.
Now the Department of the Interior and the White House have decided to shrink the size of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments, leaving some of these sites vulnerable to looting and degradation.
The reality is simple: Cultural and ecological treasures like Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments need more protection, not less. That’s why you need to speak up right now.
Stand up and show Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke and President Donald Trump that you oppose shrinking national monuments. We cannot afford to sacrifice the important treasures these places protect.
Tell Trump NO by signing the petition here.
