President Trump is considering a drastic plan to revoke the national monument status of the Bears Ears region in southeastern Utah. Urge Secretary Ryan Zinke to fight back against Trump's environmental assault — and defend the Bears Ears and all of our nation's iconic public lands and waters.
President Trump is considering a drastic plan to revoke the national monument status of the Bears Ears region in southeastern Utah. The Bears Ears — 1.35 million acres of public lands near Canyonlands National Park — has been home to Native American tribes for millennia.
Trump's plan would leave this spectacular natural treasure vulnerable to oil and gas drilling, uranium mining, tar sands extraction and other dangers — with potentially devastating consequences. What's more, any attempt by Trump to revoke this monument designation is illegal. We must mobilize a nationwide public outcry to show the Trump administration that the American people will not let this stand.
Urge Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to honor tribal heritage and protect this unique wildland by preserving the national monument status of the Bears Ears and protect all of our public lands and waters from destruction.
